Abstract:

A greenhouse pot experiment was carried out using factorial CRD with Three replications during Rabi 2014 to investigate the of applied Zn and organics on Zinc content and dry biomass yield of Spinacea oleracea. The experiment consisted of four levels of Zn, i.e. 0, 5, 20 and 40 mg kg-1 soil and three levels of organics, i.e. control, 3% FYM and 3% PM. Dry matter yield of Spinach in first cutting (3.06 g pot-1) marginally increased due to application of Zn at 5 mg kg-1 soil over control (2.84 g pot-1), which was statistically increased with applied level of 40 mg Zn kg-1 soil (3.26 g pot-1). In case of second cutting, reductions in dry matter yield were observed at applied level of 20 (1.55 g pot-1) and 40 mg Zn kg-1 soil (1.47 g pot-1). Zinc content increased significantly with increase in Zn level. Zinc content gets reduced due to application of farmyard manure (FYM) and poultry manure in soil. DTPA extractable Zn increased with increases in Zn level. FYM and PM reduced the DTPA extractable Zn in soil.
