Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to determine the suitable combination of lime and boron during winter season months under terai region of West Bengal. The experiments were carried out at Instructional Farm, UBKV, Pundibari, Coochbehar during 2015-16. The experiment consisted of two levels of lime (0 and 450 kg/ha) and six levels of Boron (0kg/ha, 7.5 kg/ha, 15 kg/ha, 22.5 kg/ha, 30 kg/ha and 37.5 kg/ha). Each experiment was conducted in Asymmetrical factorial Randomized Block Design with 3 replications by using lime, boron and lime-boron interaction significantly that resulted increase in plant growth and yield as compared to the experiments conducted without lime, boron, and their interaction that is in control with the applicable dose of NPK. Similarly, the use of lime and boron significantly increased plant height and number of eaves by 18.04 % and 34.00 % respectively over the control. It was found that use of lime and boron @ 450 kg/ha and 7.5 kg/ha gave highest number of leaves (23), and use of lime and boron @ 450 kg/ha and 30 kg/ha gives maximum fresh weight (674.32 g) and head diameter (17.57 cm) in F1 hybrid Green Magic variety of sprouting broccoli. Combined use of lime (450 kg/ha) and boron (30 kg/ha) recorded 56.09 % higher yield (16.16 t/ha) over the control(5.93 t/ha).
