Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Research Farm, Department of vegetable science, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during 2015-16 and 2016-17 to find out the effect of high RSC water, FYM and gypsum on growth and seed yield of carrot (Daucus carota L.). The cultivar used for the investigation was Hisar Gairic. The treatments comprising three levels of FYM (0, 10 and 20 t/ha) and gypsum (0, 50 and 100% neutralization of RSC) and its combinations were laid out in a factorial randomized block design with three replications keeping a net plot size of 3.0 × 3.0 m. The data were recorded on various parameters, which were influenced by different levels of gypsum and FYM. The minimum values for plant height, number of branches per plant, number of different order umbels, seed yield, biological yield and harvest index were recorded in control (F0G0). The maximum values for growth and seed yield were recorded with combination of FYM at 20 t/ha and 100% neutralization of RSC by gypsum in both the years. The results suggest that the combination of FYM at 20 t/ha and 100% neutralization of RSC by gypsum has shown the best treatment in carrot for higher seed yield with quality seed production at commercial scale under semi-arid condition of Hisar (Haryana).
