Abstract:

A field experiment was established at Agricultural Research Farm of Baba Raghav Das Post Graduate College, Deoria (U.P.), to evaluate the influence of organic and inorganic fertilizers on performance of bottle gourd and plant available nutrients. The experiment comprised eleven treatments and three replications performed under Randomised Block Design during summer season (2017 & 2018). Average of two years data revealed that application of organic and inorganic fertilizers (T8, T9, T10, T11 & T3) significantly improves the yield attributes (viz., vine length, number of primary branches per vine, maximum number of fruit per vine and days taken to appearance first female flower) as well as yield of bottle gourd in comparison with control. The yield of bottle gourd was also significantly improved by 97.7-111.0% in treatments T8, T9, T10, T11 & T3 over control due to combined application of organic and inorganic fertilizers as well as better yield attributes. Availability of plant nutrients i.e., available N, P, K & S were also significantly improved in treatments (viz., T8, T9, T10, T11 and T3) having combination of organic and inorganic fertilizers. In conclusion, the application of 10 tonnes vermicompost/ha + 25% RDF (T8) and 7.5 tonnes of vermicompost/ha + 50% RDF (T9) were performed better for yield attributes & yield of bottle gourd, as well as availability of plant available soil nutrients in Eastern Uttar Pradesh.
