Abstract:

Carrot (Daucus carota L.) is one of the most important root vegetables of both tropical and temperate countries. Proportion of organic food consumers is increasing with the increasing awareness of health and food safety concerns. There is a widespread belief that organic food is substantially healthier and safer than conventional food and consumers are willing to pay significant price premiums to obtain it. Vegetables that are produced by using organic manures are gaining more importance because of less chemical residues and better taste. This experiment was conducted to study the effect of Integrated Nutrient Management (INM) on growth, yield and quality of carrot (Daucus carota L.) var. Pusa Kesar at main Experimental Station, Department of Horticulture, BFIT Group of Institutions, Sudhowala, Dehradun, Uttarakhand (U.K), during the rabi season of 2018-19. The experiment was laid out in Randomised Block Design (RBD) with 12 treatment combination of organic and inorganic sources of nutrients. During experiment, growth parameters viz., plant height, number of leaves per plant, root length and root diameter was highest in treatment T11 (FYM 10t/ha + vermicompost 2.5t/ha + biofertilizer 2 kg/ha + 50% NPK) at 40, 60 and 80 DAS. The root yield per hectare and dry weight of root was also recorded highest. The quality characters TSS was recorded maximum in treatment T1 (FYM 20t/ha). On the basis of the investigation, it was concluded that carrot variety Pusa Kesar responded well in terms of growth, yield and quality, by the application of combination of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers in the respective treatments.
