Abstract

The integrated use of organic and inorganic sources of plant nutrients can help in sustainable and environmentally sound nutrient management of soils that are low in organic matter. A study was conducted  during 2009- 10 & 2010-11, on sandy loam soils, low in organic carbon, medium in available phosphorus and potash with pH of 7.5 at Agricultural Research Farm of C.C.R.(P.G.) College, Muzaffarnagar U.P. India, to investigate the comparative use of  integrated nutrient management on vegetative growth and yield of hybrid rice. The experiment was laid out with fifteen treatments in a RBD. The treatments were; Control (T1), NPK 100% RDF (T2), NPK 75% RDF (T3), NPK 50% RDF + FYM @ 10 tons  ha-1 (T4), NPK 50% RDF + FYM @15 tons ha-1 (T5), NPK 50% RDF + wheat cut straw @10 tons ha-1 (T6), NPK 50% RDF + wheat cut straw @15 tons ha-1 (T7), NPK 50% RDF + Neem cake @ 2.5 tones ha-1 (T8), NPK 50% RDF + Neem cake @ 5 tones ha-1 (T9), NPK 50% RDF + Vermicompost @ 2.5 tons ha-1 (T10), NPK 50% RDF + Vermicompost @ 2.5 tons ha-1 +Azotobacter (T11), NPK 50% RDF + Vermicompost @ 2.5 tones ha-1 +PSB @ 5Kg ha-1 (T12), NPK 50% RDF + Vermicompost @ 2.5 tones ha-1 + Azospirillum (T13), NPK 50% RDF  + Azotobacter + Azospirillum + PSB @ 5 Kg ha-1(T14), and NPK 50% RDF + Neem cake @ 2.5 tones ha-1 +FYM @5 tons  ha-1 + Azotobacter+PSB @ 5Kg ha-1 (T15). The maximum grain yield (63 and 67 q per hectare during 2009 and 2010, respectively) was obtained with the integration of NPK 50% RDF + Neem cake @2.5 tonnes ha-1 + FYM @5 tonnes ha-1+Azotobacter+PSB @ 5kg ha-1.
