Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on “Effect of INM practices on plant growth, fruit yield and quality attributes in chilli at College of Horticulture, Mudigere during rabi season. Results revealed that, among the different treatments, the combination of Azospirillum + PSB + VAM + KSB + 50% RDF + MgSO4 + Micronutrient mixture stimulated better response in terms of growth yield and quality attributes of chilli (T12). The maximum plant height (88.61 cm), number of primary and secondary braches per plant (11.22 and 18.44, respectively), number of leaves (298.87), leaf area of plant (10578.06 cm2), leaf area index (3.92) and total dry matter (118.48 g/plant) were recorded in treatment T12. The same treatment also recorded maximum fruit length (11.60 cm), fruit girth (4.80 cm), fresh weigh of fruit/plant (268.89 g), fruit yield /plant (658.67 g), yield/ plot (13.75 kg) and yield/ha (22.92 t/ha). Quality parameters like chloropyll content in leaves (79.74 SPAD units), ascorbic acid content (141.27 mg/100g) and capsaicin content (0.39 %), were also recorded maximum in the same treatment. Thus, combined use of organic and inorganic manures, biofertilizers and micronutrient mixture proved better in improving the growth, yield and quality attributes than using inorganic nutrients alone.
