Abstract:

The experiment was conducted under field condition at School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, Shobhit University Gangoh Saharanpur, (UP) to determine the study of vermicompost, cow dung and phosphate solubilizing bacteria on growth and yield components of Potato (Solanum tuberosum L). The Randomized Block Design (RBD) was used with four replications. A Potato cultivar Kufri Chipsona 3 was grown combined with vermicompost, cow dung and phosphate solubilizing bacteria during 2016-17 and 2017-18 both the years. There were eight treatments used in which one control and remaining seven treatments consists combination of vermicompost, cow dung and phosphate solubilizing bacteria. Growth parameters were plant height, leaf length, and stem diameter while yield parameters were tuber weight, and tuber yield were recorded. The maximum values for plant height, leaf length, stem diameter were recorded from (Vermicompost  + Cow dung + PSB) respectively. However the minimum values of all the parameters were recorded from the control treatment. From the study it could be concluded that Potato yield components were greatly affected by different rates of organic and bio fertilizers. The appropriate amount of different rates of organic and biofertilizers (Vermicompost + Cow dung + PSB) should be used to increase potato yield and yield attributing character.
