Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “studies on sources and levels of organic manures on yield, yield attributes and quality of black cumin” was conducted at RIOF, UAS, GKVK, Bengaluru during rabi 2017. The experiment was laid out in RCBD with 12 treatments replicated thrice and the cultivar used was Ajmer Kalonji-1. Results revealed that application of 125 per cent N equivalent through vermicompost recorded significantly higher seed yield and fixed oil yield (723 and 261 kg ha-1, respectively). This was attributed mainly by enhanced yield attributes like days to 50 per cent flowering (52.34), number of pods per plant (28.67), size of pods (3.00 cm2) and seeds per pod (87.33), 1000 seed weight (2.39 g) and quality parameters like fixed oil (36.20 %) and volatile oil (0.70 %). Significantly lower yield and yield attributes, quality of black cumin was recorded in application of 75 per cent N equivalent through compost.
