The results showed that the combination of Bokashi and NPK fertilizer application significanly affected the harvest age and numbers of cobs, bokashi fertilizer treatments significanly affected the diameter of the cob whitout husk and cob weight without husk whereas NPK fertilizer treatment significanly affected plant height, time of harvest, number of cob per plot and prodution per plot.
