Abstract

A liquid waste from methane fermantation was applied on Maize field to determine its effect and optimum application rate on the plant growth. A basal application of liquid waste increased a considerable amount of soil water resulting in an increase of germination. Fresh and dry yields of maize plant increased as the liquid waste application rate increased and same as plant growth. Nitrogen and phosphorus components in plant and soil showed the same tendency as the yields. The result indicates that the liquid waste is potentially useful source for a fertilizer and irrigation water.
