Abstract

It is generally observed that the prices of the synthetic chemical fertilizers are increasing unexpectedly. Therefore, to bring the best alternative solution of that problem, a series of experiments has been started in which distillery spent wash (DSW) as well as different levels of NPK (standard chemical fertilizer) have been brought under study. In this study distillery spent wash at 8.0%+ 92% water and NPK 10 g L1(standard chemical fertilizer with 18-23-23%) were applied to observe the performance of wheat at seedling stage 42 days after sowing (DAS). The data of 200 plants were collected at random from each environmental condition, such as, control, DSW treated and NPK treated. The average performance of wheat plants treated with DSW was root length (10.675 cm), shoot height (45 cm), fresh root weight (34.67 g), fresh shoot weight (71.28 g), dry root weight (6.38 g) and shoot dry weight (7.87 g) were recorded. However, these all traits of observations were highest for NPK (standard chemical fertilizer) treated plants.

Keywords: Wheat, distillery spent wash, root, shoot, seedlings.
