Abstract:

The experiment entitled, response of bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria (Mol.) Standl.) to organic nutrient management, was carried out during summer-2016 at Horticulture Instructional Farm, Department of Horticulture, Chimanbhai Patel College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar (Gujarat). Total nine treatment combinations of organic nutrient were tested in the Randomized Block Design with three replications. Application of sources of organic nutrients significantly affected growth, yield and quality parameters. Maximum vine length at 60 DAS (392.50 cm) was recorded with treatment 50% FYM + 50% poultry manure + biofertilizers (Azospirillium+PSB + KSM) (T4). Maximum number of branches per plant (3.18), yield per plant (3.71 kg) and per meter square (5.19 kg) was found with application of 50% castor cake + 50% poultry manure + biofertilizers + Trichoderma viride + neem oil (T9). While maximum fruit diameter (6.39 cm) was recorded in 50% Neem cake + 50% Poultry Manure + Biofertilizers (Azospirillium + PSB + KSM) + Trichoderma viride + neem oil (T8). Application of organic nutrients significantly affected soil properties like available nitrogen (195.64 kg/ha), phosphorus (37.20 kg/ha) and potassium (226.80 kg/ha) were found maximum with treatment 50 per cent N from FYM + 50 per cent N from Poultry Manure + Biofertilizer (Azospirillium + PSB + KSM) + Trichoderma viride + Neem oil (T7).
