A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Research Farm of CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during Rabi season of 2017-18 and 2018-19 to study the impact of integrated nutrient management on growth phenology, yield and quality of wheat. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications consisting of ten treatments combinations i.e. T1-Control; T2-100% recommended dose of nitrogen (RDN) + 25% N through FYM; T3-100% RDN + 25% N through vermicompost; T4-75% RDN + 25% N through FYM; T5-75% RDN + 25% N through vermicompost; T6-50% RDN + 50% N through FYM, T7-50% RDN + 50% N through vermicompost; T8-25% RDN + 75% N through FYM; T9-25% RDN + 75% N through vermicompost and T10-100% RDN . Treatment T3 (100% RDN + 25% N through vermicompost) has taken significantly higher number of days to 50% heading (94.67 and 96.33), 50% anthesis (102.33 and 104.33) and to maturity (150.00 and 150.33) during both the consecutive years, respectively. Similarly T3 had significantly higher grain yield (5654 and 5798 kg/ha), hectoliter weight (82.50 and 83.35 kg/hl), grain appearance score (7.81 and 7.93 scale/10) and protein content (11.94 and 12.31%) of wheat during both the consecutive years, respectively.
