Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during kharif (rainy) season of 2019 on “Effect of different levels of NPK and FYM on physico-chemical properties of soil of Okra (Abelmoschus esculntus L.) var. Parbhani Karanti” on Central Research Farm Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, SHUATS, Prayagraj. The soil of experiment area falls in order Inceptisol and soil texture was sandy loam (sand % 61.20, silt % 23.20 and clay % 14.6). There were 9 treatments combination replicated thrice in 3 x 3 factorial randomized block design. It was observed that for post harvest, soil properties in treatment T8- (100% RDF @ N100 P60 K50 kg ha-1 +100% FYM @ 25 t ha‑1) were improved significantly due to organic and inorganic use of inputs. The maximum values of pore space (60.1 %), water holding capacity (63.63 %), organic carbon (0.62 %), available nitrogen (297.56 kg ha-1), available phosphorus (26.35 kg ha-1) and available potassium (202.55 kg ha-1) was with treatment T8- (100% RDF @ N100 P60 K50 kg ha-1 +100% FYM @ 25 t ha‑1). The combination of T8- (100% RDF @ N100 P60 K50 kg ha-1 +100% FYM @ 25 t ha‑1) showed slight decrease in pH (6.8), bulk density (1.18 Mg m-3) and particle density (2.50 Mg m-3), the same treatment EC (0.33 dS m-1) was slightly increase in post harvest soil. It may be concluded from trial that the various level of NPK and FYM used from different sources in the experiment, the treatment T8 - (100% RDF @ N100 P60 K50 kg ha-1 +100% FYM @ 25 t ha‑1) was found to be the best, for improvement in physical and chemical properties of soil.
