Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Rabi 2014-2015 at Experimental Farm of Division of Vegetable Science SKUAST-K Shalimar to find out the suitable nutrient management practices for enhanced growth and yield attributes of Chinese cabbage. Based on VC, FYM, SM, and BDC, the experiment was comprised of 13 treatments (including RDF) with or without biofertilizers and laid out in RCBD with three replications. Data revealed that VC @ 6.6t/ha + AB + PSB + KSB (T4) recorded maximum plant height (30.33cm), fresh weight (1170.00 g plant-1), dry weight (64.37 g plant-1) and shoot/ root dry weight ratio (16.46) at 60 DAT against the minimum plant height (22.67cm), fresh weight (578.33g plant-1), dry weight (31.59 g plant-1) and shoot/ root dry weight ratio (10.93) in 50% nutrient application through inorganic + 50% through FYM (T6). While talking about RGR, T4 further verified its superiority by presenting higher RGRs (0.97 and 0.743 g.g1day-1), no. of folded leaves (30.33plant-1), head diameter (6.50 cm), head length (21.16cm), head weight (613.33g) and head compactness of (1.89) coupled with least number of days taken to head initiation (19.33) in opposition to the significantly lowest values of folded leaves, head diameter, head length, head weight and head compactness (0.86) coupled with maximum number of days taken to head initiation in T6 which was immaterially trailed by T1 i.e. RDF.
