EFFICIENCY OF PRIESTIA ARYABHATTAI COMBINATION WITH DIFFERENT NITROGEN FERTILIZER ON GROWTH, YIELD ATTRIBUTE, YIELD AND QUALITY OF BABY MAIZE (ZEA MAYS L.)
The efficiency of five various nitrogen ratios (0, 325, 224.8, 162.5 and 81.3 kg N/ha) and Priestia aryabhattai on soil chemical properties, growth, development and productivity of baby corn was carried out outside net house in agricultural research center of An Giang university from Jun to August of 2023. The experimental design was performed by using randomized complete block design with five treatments and four repeats. Research results showed that various nitrogen ratios remarkably increased on soil chemical properties (Available P, total N, CEC and OM), biomass and ear number per plant. Furthermore, nitrogen rates and Priestia aryabhattai were significantly affected plant height, leaf number and total chlorophyll per plant. Nonetheless, five N2 ratios applied, the optimal N level between 162.5 and 243.8 kg N /ha combined with Priestia aryabhattai inoculation potentially raised the edible cob yield, indicating that N treatment had the ability to produce higher edible cob yield as well as higher quality contents of baby corn edible cob. However, Interaction between nitrogen rates and Priestia aryabhattai was not affected on yield composition, edible cob yield and edible cob quality of baby corn.
