Abstract:

Application of organic fertilizers contributes to sustainability of agricultural systems. Two field experiments were conducted during 2010 - 12 at Agricultural College & Research Institute, Killikulam, Tamil Nadu to study the response of organic manures and their time of application on yield and quality of chillies. The field experiments were conducted in split plot design with different sources of organic manures (FYM, Vermicompost and FYM +Vermicompost ) and time of application of organic manures (All basal, 2, 3 and 4 splits). Pooled analysis of data revealed that, among the sources of organic manures, vermicompost (VC) 100% application recorded the highest capsaicin (0.63%), oleoresin (14.0%), ascorbic acid (140 mg/100g) and colour value (303 ASTA units) of chillies. Application of organic manures in 4 splits registered the highest capsaicin (0.63%), oleoresin (14.0%), ascorbic acid (145 mg/100g) and colour value (297 ASTA units). While comparing organic and inorganic sources, application of organic manures recorded higher values with respect to quality parameters when compared to inorganic fertilizers application. Hence, vermicompost 100% application on N equivalent basis in four equal splits can be adopted to get best quality of chillies under organic farming.
