Title : Interactive effects of conservation tillage practices and precision nitrogen management options on the performance of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in Indo-Gangetic Plains

Abstract :

This two year of study was conducted during 2017–18 and 2018-19 to assess the influence of Conservation tillage practices (CTPs) and precision nitrogen management practices (PNM) on wheat genotype DBW-17 in sandy loam soil of Modipuram, Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. The experiment comprising four crop establishment methods (CEMs) [(Zero tillage (ZT), reduced tillage (RT), furrow irrigation raised beds (FIRB), conventional tillage (CT)] in the main plot and five precision nitrogen management options [N 80:20, N 33:33:33, N 80 – LCC, N 50:50 and farmers fertilization practice in sub-plot and laid out in split-plot design with three replications. The results of the current experiment showed that the use of a furrow irrigated raised bed system (FIRB) and the application of nutrients like N 80-LCC for wheat seemed to be the best combination for achieving higher crop growth characteristics and yield under the north-western plain zone of Uttar Pradesh. So, during two years of study, it was confirmed that FIRB and N 80- LCC based practices on wheat fertilizer demand could significantly increase efficiency and achieve a higher yield level, which provides a theoretical basis for the realization of the synergistic combination.
