Abstract: A field experiment entitled, “Utilization of Phosphorus Rich Compost in Maize (Zea mays L.)” was carried out at the Instructional Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur during Kharif, 2013. The experiment comprised 11 treatments of phosphorus source (DAP, SSP and PRC with and without phosphate solubilise bacteria and Vermiculture) including one control. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications. The soil of the experimental site was sandy clay loam in texture, slightly alkaline in reaction (pH 7.78), medium in available nitrogen (262 kg ha-1) and phosphorus (20.5 kg ha-1), while high in potassium (432 kg ha-1) and sufficient amount of DTPA extractable micronutrients. Use of 25 % RDP through PRC + Vermiculture + PSB + 75 % RDP through DAP significantly improved plant height, dry matter accumulation at harvest over control. Grain and stover yield (3933 and 5738 kg ha-1) were also significantly higher over control with a corresponding increase of 107.58 and 82.56 per cent and was found at par with 100% RDP through DAP (T1), 100% RDP through SSP (T2) , 25% RDP through PRC + PSB + 75% RDP through DAP (T4), 25% RDP through PRC + Vermiculture + 75% RDP through DAP (T5), 100% RDP through PRC + PSB (T8), and 100% RDP through PRC + Vermiculture + PSB (T10). Similarly, higher content and uptake of macronutrients (N, P, and K) and micronutrients (Zn, Fe, Mn, and Cu) were also recorded under 25 % RDP through PRC + Vermiculture + PSB + 75 % RDP through DAP (T6) which was higher over control. Maximum soil organic carbon, available nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, iron and manganese, was observed in treatment where 100% RDP through PRC+ Vermiculture + PSB was applied followed by the treatment of 100% RDP through PRC + Vermiculture. The best economic grain yield (3933 kg ha-1) and net profit ( 38337 ha-1) were observed under application of 25 % RDP through PRC + Vermiculture + PSB + 75 % RDP through DAP (T6).
