A field experiment was conducted in an ongoing Long-Term Fertilizer Experiment during 2017-18 and 2018-19 at the Research Farm, College of Agriculture, Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Jabalpur to study the effect of long-term fertilizer application on performance of wheat crop and soil properties. The experiment was conducted in a randomized block design with ten treatments in four replications. The treatments comprised were 50% NPK, 100% NPK, 150% NPK, 100% NPK+Hand weeding, 100% NPK+Zn, 100% NP, 100% N, 100% NPK+FYM, 100% NPK-S and Control. The wheat crop (cv. GW-366) was grown with recommended nutrient dose of 120:80:40 (N: P2O5: K2O) in Rabi season. Field observations such as plant height and number of tillers were recorded at various growth stages and periodic intervals. The grain yield, straw yield and total biomass were recorded at crop harvest. The representative soil samples were collected from 0-15 cm depth and analyzed for different properties. The results revealed that, the wheat responded positively to the balanced nutrition as compared to no fertilization and imbalanced fertilization. Similarly, the application of balanced application of fertilizers showed higher soil organic carbon and nutrients as compared to the imbalanced nutrition.
