Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during winter season of 2018-19 at Experimental Farm, Department of Horticulture, Udai Pratap Autonomous College, Varanasi (U.P.) in Randomized Block Design with three replications. Different combinations of Panchgavya, Vermiwash and organic manure (FYM) with control were used as treatment. Observations were recorded on vegetative, reproductive and yield related parameters. On the basis of recorded observations, it is found that the performance of the T5 (100% NPK through FYM @ 20 t/ha + foliar spray of Panchagavya @ 4%) was better in all growth parameters such as plant height (19.49, 31.20 and 39.23 cm), number of leaves per plant (9.37, 15.87 and 19.75), leaf area (220.35, 358.52 and 518.25 cm2), leaf length (12.50, 19.60 and 19.90 cm)and stem length (6.50, 8.89 and 10.78 cm), while the performance of T6[100% NPK through Vermiwash (1:5 times dilution) + foliar spray of Panchagavya @ 4%] was found significant influence on Days of curd initiation (63.69 days) and Days of curd maturity (74.09 days) at 30, 45 and 60 DAT. The values for the characters Diameter of curd (12.07 cm), Weight of curd (737.78 g), Curd yield per plot (11.77 kg), Curd yield per hectare (273.57 q) showed highly significant performance with T6 [100% NPK through Vermiwash (1:5 times dilution) + foliar spray of Panchagavya @ 4%]. The treatment T5 (100% NPK through FYM @ 20 t/ha + foliar spray of Panchagavya @ 4%) performed as the best combination for growth and T6 [100% NPK through Vermiwash (1:5 times dilution) + foliar spray of Panchagavya @ 4%] for reproductive and yield characters for commercial production of cauliflower.
