Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at the certified organic farm, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during rabi season of 2016-2017 to study the “Effect of organics on soil properties, growth, yield and quality of fenugreek (Trigonellafoenum-graecum L.) grown under organic farming system”. The treatment comprising three treatment of solid organics (S0: Control, S1: NADEP compost @ 5 t ha-1 and S2: Vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1) and four treatment of liquid organics (L0: Control, L1: Panchagavya @ 20 L ha-1, L2: Jeevamruta @ 200 L ha-1 and L3: Enriched banana pseudostemsap @ 5 L ha-1) were evaluated in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replication on fenugreek variety “GM-2”. After harvest, significantly higher nutrient content (N, P, K, Mn and Zn content in seed and N, P, K, Mn, Zn and Cu content in straw) were recorded with the treatment S1 (NADEP compost @ 5 t ha-1) and it was at par with treatment S2 (Vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1) except N content in seed. Similarly, treatment receiving NADEP compost @ 5 t ha-1 recorded significantly higher macro and micronutrient uptake by fenugreek and statistically remained at par with treatment S2 (Vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1).Significantly higher N, K and Mn content in seed and N, P and Mn content in straw were recorded with the treatment L3 (enriched banana pseudo stem sap @ 5 L ha-1) and was at par with treatment L1 in case of N content in seed and Mn content in straw. L3 also found at par with treatment L1 and L2 in case of K content in seed of fenugreek. Application of enriched banana pseudostem sap @ 5 L ha-1 recorded significantly higher macro and micronutrient uptake by fenugreek and statistically remained at par with treatment L1.In case of interaction, the combined application of NADEP compost @ 5 t ha-1 and enriched banana pseudostem sap @ 5 L ha-1 (S1L3) recorded significantly higher fenugreek total N, P and K uptake and was found statistically at par with treatment combination S1L1, S1L2, S2L1, S2L2 and S2L3 in case of seed and straw yield, and S1L1, S2L1 and S2L3 in case of total N, P and K uptake.
