Baby corn is a one group of the specialty maize and now very popular in India too for high nutritional and marketable values. It is mainly grown Kharif season but its sensitivity of high moisture affects its production. Therefore, the present study was carried out in Kharif season-2019 to optimize the establishment method and its nutrient management. The experimental results indicated that ridge planting with application of 75%RDF+25%VC gave significantly higher plant stand, plant height, dry matter accumulation, LAI, CGR, RGR, chlorophyll content, baby corn yield and green fodder yield, however it was very close to 100% RDF. Therefore, the baby corn may be planting on ridges with application of 75%RDF+25%VC for higher baby corn and quality green fodder in Tarai region of Uttarakhand.
