Abstract

An experiment was carried out in the field during rabi season 2022-23 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P.). The experiment was conducted to determine the response of wheat crop to different planting methods and biofertilizer application. There were nine treatments in the experiment, each replicated thrice and it was laid out in Randomized Block Design. The results showed that System of Wheat Intensification in combination with Azotobacter and Azospirillum recorded significant and higher plant height (101.93 cm), number of tillers / hill (12.91), plant dry weight (24.53 g), number of effective tillers / hill (9.78) and number of grains / spike (58.76). Whereas, Raised bed in combination with Azotobacter and Azospirillum significantly increased Leaf area index (3.66) and Crop growth rate (17.42 g/m2/day) compared to other treatments.
