Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted to know the effect of different levels of fertilizers viz., F1-80:40:40 kg NPK/ha, F2-120:60:60 kg NPK/ha, F3-160:80:80 kg NPK/ha, F4-200:100:100 kg NPK/ha and F5-240:120:120 kg/ha and microbes viz., M0-0, M1- Azotobacter, M2-Azospirillum, M3-VAM and M4-PSB. The experiment comprised of 25 different treatment combinations and replicated thrice. Results from the study indicated the combined application of NPK @ 200:100:100 kg/ha along with soil application with Azospirillum gave significantly higher plant height (30.77cm), plant spread (54.23cm), head diameter (24.41cm), head depth (21.81cm), head weight (1.88kg) and head yield (868.51q/ha). However, days taken to head formation and head maturity, number of outer leaves/plant and number of inner leaves/head did not show significant interaction effects. Therefore, it may be concluded that combined application of NPK @ 200:100:100 kg/ha along with soil application treatment with Azospirillum was the most effective combination for higher growth and yield in cabbage.
