The study was conducted to assess the impacts brought by fertilizer towards the growth and yield performance of sweet corn under no tillage operation in Bukidnon, Philippines. The study took place at the research station of IPB-UPLB, Musuan, Bukidnon, Philippines. Soil samples were taken from the site for initial characterization. Six treatments were employed; T1- No fertilizer,T2- Recommended rate of inorganic fertilizer (RRIF) based on soil analysis of the experimental area, T3- 2 tons ha-1 Vermicompost, T4- ½ RRIF + 1 ton ha-1 Vermicompost, T5- ½ RRIF + 2 tons ha-1 Vermicompost and T6- RRIF + 1 ton Vermicompost. Fertilizer treatments were incorporated in the soil to facilitate appropriate chemical reactions.
