Effect of Organic Manures, Inorganic Fertilizers and their Combinations on Yield of Radish (Raphanus sativus L.) CV. Japanese White
Keywords:Farmyard Manure, Vermicompost, RDF (NPK), Radish, Yield Parameters
A field experiment was carried out at Vegetable Demonstration and Research Block, Department of Vegetable Science, College of Horticulture, VCSG Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Bharsar, during March-May 2017. The study consisted of 9 treatments having sole application of organic manure, inorganic fertilizers and their combinations. The treatments were replicated thrice in a plot having dimensions 1.80 m × 1 m and a spacing of 45 cm × 10 cm was followed. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design. Observations on various yield parameters of radish were recorded. The results revealed that root weight (144.53 g), root length (28.21 cm), middle diameter of root (3.49 cm), yield per plot (4.65 kg/), yield per hectare (258.32 q) and total soluble solids (5.67 °Brix) was observed in treatment T5 [50% FYM + 50% VC]. Further maximum cost: benefit ratio (1: 2.49) was obtained in treatment T6 [50% FYM + 50% RDF (NPK)].
