Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of integrated nutrient management on nutrient concentration and uptake of Grafted tomato during 2017-2018 at Central Horticultural Experiment Station (Aiginia), Bhubaneswar with inorganic and organic nutrient sources. The experimental results of grafted tomato with INM package showed that Nutrient content of fruit was higher in non-grafted tomato than grafted tomatoes. Whereas, in harvested plant sample nutrient content was higher in grafted tomato. Irrespective of grafting method, the treatment 100% inorganic nitrogen showed highest N and K concentration and uptake compared to 100 % organic nitrogen and combination of organic and inorganic nitrogen treatments. Whereas the treatment 100 % organic nitrogen showed highest Ca, Mg and S uptake and concentration compared to 100 % organic nitrogen. But P concentration and uptake was highest in combination of inorganic and organic treatments. Overall, the grafted tomato has shown highest nutrient concentration and uptake compared to non-grafted tomato, often been attributed to the difference in root morphology and root characteristics including lateral and vertical development of roots, root length, density and number of root hairs which played an active role in nutrient uptake. Crop had harvested more amounts of nutrients from soil for growth and yield.
