Application of recommended dose of N and P significantly increased the grain and straw yield of barley from 16.92 to 28.30 and from 29.78 to 48.54 q ha-1 over control and all other treatments of FYM. With the increase in level of FYM form 5 to 10 and 15 t ha-1 grain yield of barley increased significantly from 18.82 to 21.25 and from 21.25 to 23.74 respectively and that of straw yield from 32.89 to 36.69 and from 36.69 to 40.83 respectively. Application of N and P also significantly increased the N, P and K uptake by grain from 27.92 to 48.96, from 7.95 to 16.98 and from 10.49 to 18.96 kg ha -1 and by straw from 8.64 to 21.36, 2.68 to 9.81 and from 39.9 to 70.38 kg ha -1 respectively over all other treatments. With the subsequent increase in the level of FYM from 5 to 10 and 15 t ha-1 subsequently increased the N, P and K uptake by barley grain from 32.18 to 40.83, from 9.03 to 13.05 and from 12.05 to 16.38 kg ha -1, respectively and that of by barley straw from 10.53 to 16.33, from 3.95 to 6.42 and from 47.03 to 62.06 kg ha -1, respectively.
Key words : Grain and straw yield, barley, N, P and K uptake.
