Author(s): Yogendra Pal, Jogendra Kumar, UK Saxena and Purshottam Kumar

Abstract: Krishi Vigyan Kendra Dhanauri (Haridwar) conducted front-line demonstrations in the fields of 10 selected farmers of the adopted villages of the Haridwar district during Rabi season 2017-18 and 2018-19 with an objective to study the effect of the recommended dose of fertilizers on the grain yield of wheat variety HD-2967 at farmers’ field. Farmers’ practices comprised the use of 100 kg nitrogen + 60 kg phosphorus, while the recommended dose of fertilizers was 120 kg N2 + 40 kg P2O5 + 40 kg K2Owith one foliar spray of soluble NPK (18:18:18) at the vegetative growth stage and one spray of micronutrient liquid fertilizer at the grain filling stage of wheat. Results showed that the average yield obtained was 42.70 and 43.90 q/ha respectively under the recommended dose of fertilizers whereas in farmers’ practices the yield recorded was 37.50 and 38.00 q/ha during 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively. The average percent increase in yield with the recommended dose of fertilizers over farmers' practice was 14.65 percent. The extension gap recorded was 5.2 and 5.9 q/ha during 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively.
