This study investigates the impact of diverse nitrogen fertilizer sources on maize productivity, utilizing urea, ammonium nitrate, anhydrous ammonia, potassium nitrate, and a control group as distinct treatments. The experiment, conducted in a field condition, meticulously examines key indicators of maize growth and yield enhancement. Results reveal varied responses to each nitrogen fertilizer source, shedding light on their differential effects on crucial factors such as plant height, leaf area, grain yield, and overall crop performance. Urea, known for its widespread application, demonstrates notable effects on maize productivity, while ammonium nitrate exhibits a distinct influence on specific growth parameters. Anhydrous ammonia and potassium nitrate, representing alternative nitrogen sources, introduce unique dynamics in plant development and yield outcomes. The control group provides a baseline for comparison, facilitating a comprehensive assessment of the fertilizers' efficacy. The findings from this research contribute valuable insights into tailoring nitrogen fertilizer strategies for optimal maize productivity. By unraveling the specific impacts of different nitrogen sources, this study paves the way for precision agriculture practices, fostering sustainable and efficient maize cultivation methods.
