Abstract

A study was conducted to assess the long term effects of fertilizers and FYM on physical properties and crop productivity after 19th cycle of sorghum-wheat cropping sequence in a  Vertisol. The combined use of inorganic fertilizers (100 % NPK) along with FYM @ 10 t ha-1 significantly improved the bulk density, hydraulic conductivity, available water capacity, water stable aggregates and coefficient of linear extensibility of soil and yield of crops. Total productivity (sorghum + wheat) was found to be positively correlated with these properties.
