Abstract— On Farm Trail was conducted in five locations of Mangalore and Nallore Block of Cuddalore District to assess the ‘Nutriseed pack’ technique on maize. Nutriseed pack is a small tubular form that is 20 mm diameter, 10 cm height. Nutriseed pack contains seed at top, manure in the middle and fertilizer at bottom. The experiment consisted of three treatments viz., Farmer practice (TO1), recommended dose of fertilizer (TO2) and Nutriseed Pack (TO3) The results revealed that, the grain yield recorded with different treatment ranged between 65.44 to 74.00 q ha-1. Among the technologies, Nutriseed pack (TO3) was recorded more yield of 74.00 q ha-1 (13.08% increased yield over control) than that of 71.92 q ha-1 recommended dose of fertilizer applied in the field followed by farmers practice (65.44 q ha-1). Similar trend of results were also observed in yield parameters. Enrichment of manure pellet and fertilizer that is Nutriseed pack was effective when compared to other technologies.
