Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2017-2018 at Vegetable Research Block, College of Horticulture - Mojerla, SKLTS Horticultural University, Hyderabad, Telangana, India, to study the effect of integrated nutrient management (INM) on quality parameters and economics of carrot (Daucas carota L.) cv. Kuroda improved. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with nine treatments and three replications. The results pertaining to quality parameters indicated that higher percentage of total soluble solids (12.40 %), ascorbic acid content (5.33 mg/100 g), carotene content (4.73 mg/100 g) and cortex to core ratio (0.90) were recorded in T9 (25 % RDF + 50 % FYM @ 6 t/ha + 50 % Vermicompost @ 3 t/ha + 50 % Rhizosphere Bacteria) while lower percentage of cracked roots (3.83 %) and forked roots (3.70%) were recorded in T2 (FYM 12 t/ha) and T3 (Vermicompost @ 6 t/ha) respectively. The highest gross return (Rs. 3,72,000), net return (Rs. 2,99,467) and best benefit cost ratio (4.13) were recorded in the treatment T9 (25 % RDF + 50 % FYM @ 6 t/ha + 50 % Vermicompost @ 3 t/ha + 50 % Rhizosphere Bacteria).
