The experiment on soil properties and yield of fodder maize influenced by primary biomethanated spentwash was carried at Post Graduate Farm, MPKV, Rahuri during 2011-12. The effect of varying doses of primary biomethanated spentwash (100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 m3 ha-1) and combination of FYM + RDF, FYM + 50 % GR and FYM + RDF + 100 % GR + RDF on soil properties and yield of fodder maize was studied. The experimental soil was Vertic Haplustepts with alkaline (pH 8.90), calcareous (CaCO3 10.50 %), clay in texture, high in exchangeable sodium (10.60 cmol (p+) kg-1) and ESP (25.20) with low in available nitrogen and phosphorus and high in available potassium. The available N, P and K after harvest of crop were significantly higher in PBSW treatment applied @ 500 m3 ha-1, however, uptake and yield were significantly higher in 400 m3 ha-1 and 500 m3 ha-1 treatments (495.30, 517.31 q ha-1 green yield respectively) followed by FYM + RDF + @ 50 % GR and FYM + RDF + 100 % GR.
