Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to study the impact of intercropping and integrated nutrient management on growth, yield of chilli during late kharif 2015 and 2016 at College of Horticulture, Venkataramannagudem. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with five main plot treatments i.e. sole chilli (M0), four intercrops onion (M1), coriander (M2), fenugreek (M3) and marigold (M4) combined with five sub plot treatments viz., 100% RDN through urea (S0), 25% RDN through FYM + 75% RDN through urea (S1), 25% RDN through vermicompost + 75% RDN through urea (S2), 25% RDN through poultry manure + 75% RDN through urea (S3) and 25% RDN through neem cake + 75% RDN through urea (S4), consisting of 25 treatment combinations, replicated thrice. All the intercrops, except marigold, positively influenced the growth and yield of chilli over chilli sole cropping. Chilli + fenugreek (M3) treatment recorded maximum values for growth and yield parameters whereas, marigold as intercrop recorded the minimum values for plant growth and yield, of chilli. Among the INM treatments, maximum number of green fruits per plant, green fruit weight, 100 green fruit weight, green and ripe chilli yield per plant and, green and dry chilli yield per plot, dry chilli yield per ha were recorded with application of 25% RDN through neem cake + 75% RDN through urea (S4) treatment, over application of 100 % RDN through urea (S0). Among the interactions, chilli intercropped with fenugreek and applied with 25% RDN through neem cake + 75% RDN through urea was found superior in terms of growth and yield.
