Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to find out the optimum nutrient levels of NPK on growth and yield of radish cv. Pusa Chetki in open field condition at department of Vegetable Science, College of Horticulture, Mudigere, during 2019-2020. The experiment consists of different levels of nutrition which were tried in various combinations and assessed for growth and yield parameters. Among the different nutrition levels, T4 (200:100:50 kg NPK / ha) recorded significantly maximum plant height (42.71 cm), number of leaves per plant (14.47), leaf length (32.57 cm), fresh weight of root (271.33 g), dry weight of root (9.89 g / plant), total chlorophyll content (1.75 mg / g fr. wt), root length (23.60 cm), root girth (13.13 cm) as compared to control. The maximum root yield per plot (5.00 kg) and per hectare (33.33 t) was also recorded in T4 (200:100:50 kg NPK / ha).The above results revealed that application of 200 kg nitrogen, 100 kg phosphorus and 50 kg potassium per hectare was found to be optimum nutrition level for best growth and yield of radish under hill zone of Karnataka.
