Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at organic farm, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during Rabi season of 2017-2018 to study the effect of land configuration, fertilizer level and liquid formulation on yield, nutrient content and uptake by carrot under organic farming. The treatments imposed were three levels of land configuration i.e. C1: Flatbed C2: Ridge and furrow and C3: Broad bed, three levels of fertilizer i.e. F1: 100% N through vermicompost F2: 75% N through vermicompost, and F3: 50% N through vermicompost and two levels of liquid formulation i.e. L1: Jeevamrut and L2: Amritpani in FRBD which replicated thrice. The yield was significantly highest with individual treatments C3, F1 and L1 and significantly maximum root yield of carrot was achieved when 75% N was supplied in broad bed which was at par with 100% N application in all the treatments of land configuration. The nutrient content in root and shoot was not found significant but their total uptake with the treatment C3 of land configuration, F1 of fertilizer level and L1 of liquid formulation were significantly improved. Interaction effect of C x F and F x L had a beneficial effect on total uptake of N, P and K.
