Abstract:

Beetroot (Beta vulgaris L.), also called as garden beet or table beet, is one of the major root vegetable. It is grown in almost all states of India but in small scale only. It produces green tops and a swollen root used both as vegetable and salad. It is highly productive and usually free from pests and diseases (Ado, 1999). A field experiment was conducted during rabi, 2014 in alkali soils. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replicated 11 treatments viz., T1: FYM (100%), T2: Vermicompost (100%), T3: Neem cake (100%), T4: Poultry manure (100%), T5: Green manure (100%), T6: FYM (50%) + Vermicompost (50%), T7: FYM (50%) + Neem cake (50%), T8: FYM (50%) + Poultry manure (50%), T9: FYM (50%) + Green manure (50%), T10: RDF, T11: Control. The data were recorded on betanine content (mg 100g-1), TSS (°Brix), reducing sugars (%), non-reducing sugars (%), total sugars (%), storage life (days). Whereas FYM (50%) in combination with neem cake (50%) recorded maximum values for betanin content, reducing, non-reducing and total sugars. The highest TSS of root was with neem cake (100%). However, the higher net returns and BCR were obtained with poultry manure (100%).
