Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study “Performance of NPK with Vermicompost & Boron on Growth and Quality attributes of Brinjal (Solanum melongena L.)” during rainy season 2017-18 at Horticulture Farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Jaipur). The total 18 treatment combinations were tested in randomized block design with three replications. The application of 50% NPK + 50% VC significantly increased chlorophyll content (mg/g), number of primary branches plant-1, leaf area (cm2), K content in fruit (%), boron (mg/100 g) and ascorbic acid content in fruit (mg/100 g), as compared to control but statistically at par with 25% NPK + 75% VC. The application of boron (200 ppm) significantly increased the number of primary branches plant-1, leaf area (cm2), K content in fruit (%), boron and ascorbic acid content in fruit (mg/100 g), as compared to control and boron (100 ppm).
