Abstract

A pot experiment was conducted at the Lovely Professional University, Phagwara to study soil characteristic features and availability of nutrients under various fertilization strategies in wheat. Four varieties were examined named as PBW725, HD3086, HD2967 and PBW677 under various forms of fertilizers. Treatments were control (No NPK and organic fertilizer), 100% NPK, 100% organic fertilizer and NPK + organic fertilizer (50% + 50%). The height and number of leaves were recorded at 45, 60 and 90 days after sowing whereas tillers were recorded at 45 and 60 days after sowing. Yield parameters were also recorded after the harvesting of crop. The iron and protein content was also estimated in the wheat grain. Among all the fertilizers tested 50% NPK and 50% organic fertilizers was found most effective in increasing the height, number of leaves, and number of tillers, grain weight, straw weight, Fe content and protein content. Variety HD3086 was found best amongst all and responded well under applied fertilizers. All the parameters like height, number of leaves, number of tillers, grain weight, straw weight, iron content and protein content were significantly increased by the application of both 50% NPK + 50% organic fertilizer.
