A field experiment was undertaken during kharif 2016 in order to study the “Effect of different organics and inorganics on nutrient uptake by maize (Zea mays L.) grown in a Vertisol”. The experiment was laid in a randomized block design with thirteen treatments and three replications. The results revealed that the total uptake of nutrients by maize increased significantly with the incorporation of organic manures along with RDF and the highest uptake of nitrogen (162.68 kg ha-1), phosphorus (59.22 kg ha-1), potassium (171.67 kg ha-1) and sulphur (32.80 kg ha-1) and micronutrients viz., zinc (381.53 g ha-1), iron (579.63 g ha-1), manganese (781.38 g ha-1) and copper (162.52 g ha-1) was recorded in the treatment with 100 per cent RDF + FYM (T1) which was significantly higher than the treatments receiving only RDF and organics alone.
Key words: Maize, Manures, Primary and Micronutrients.
