Abstract:

An investigation entitled “Impact of different organic manures on performance of cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.)” under field conditions was conducted in October 2017-2018 at Department of Horticulture, Khalsa College Amritsar (Punjab). The investigation was laid out in RBD with eleven treatments replicated three times with spacing 45×45 cm. The eleven treatments combinations were T1- Recommended dose of fertilizers, T2-100% N by Vermicompost, T3- 100% N by Poultry manure, T4- 100% N by Farmyard manure, T5- 100% N by Vermicompost+ Azotobacter, T6- 100% N by Poultry manure+Azotobacter, T7- 100% N by Farmyard manure+Azotobacter, T8- 75% N by Vermicompost+ Azotobacter, T9- 75% N by Poultry manure+Azotobacter, T10- 75% N by Farmyard manure+Azotobacter, T11- Control. Among various treatments T1 (RDF) proved to be significant over rest of the treatments as it registered maximum growth parameters. Maximum plant height at harvest was recorded to be (30.19cm), plant spread at harvest (46.74 cm), leaf length with petiole at harvest (32.34 cm), leaf breadth (24.37 cm), leaf area (147.65 cm2), total number of leaves (31.85), total number of folded leaves (18.30), total number of unfolded leaves (13.56), stem length (NS), TSS content (4.94˚Brix), ascorbic acid content (44.05 mg/100g) was obtained in RDF. Among organic manures, poultry manure alone proved to be beneficial than Vermicompost and Farmyard manure, as it improved the growth and yield of cabbage and also gave maximum returns as compared. Among organic manures and biofertilizers, poultry manure along with Azotobacter performed better than Azotobacter combinations with Vermicompost and Farmyard manure. Among organic manure treatment T6 (4 tonnes/ha poultry manure+Azotobacter) was found to be more economical as it solve the purpose both ways one being changing the trend of using more inorganic fertilizers towards organic manures and second being getting higher returns with B:C ratio (4.84).
