Abstract:
Field experiment was carried out on farmer’s field to determine the effect of blended NPS in combination with nitrogen on yield components and yield of bread wheat during 2019 cropping season. Factorial combinations of three blended NPS levels (0, 100, and 200 kg ha-1) and six levels of nitrogen (0, 23, 46, 69, 92 and 115 kg ha-1) were laid out in a randomized complete block design with two replications. The analysis of variance indicated that plant height, thousand kernels weight and harvest index were not significantly (ption of 100 kg NPS ha-1. However the highest (39.46) number of seed per spike was recorded by 200 NPS kg ha-. Similarly, the highest (3803 kg ha-1) grain yield and (7.367cm) spike length were recorded by application of 92 kg N ha-1. But the highest (42.38) number of seed per spike was recorded by 115 kg N ha-1. The economic analysis also revealed that for a treatment to be considered as worthwhile to farmers (100% marginal rate of return) application of 200 kg NPS ha-1 with 69 kg N ha-1 were profitable and recommended for farmers in Liban Chukala District and other areas with similar Agro-ecological conditions.
