Abstract:

An investigation was designed to study the economic feasibility of use of different varied levels of nitrogenous and potassic fertilizers in eggplant in two new varieties of eggplants, BRBL-01 and BRBL-07. Four levels of N (N0-0, N1-100, N2-120, N3-140 kg/ha; respectively) and K doses (K0-0,K1-60,K2-80,K3-100 kg/ha; respectively) each were taken into consideration and there were total 32 treatment combinations. The cost of cultivation per hectare for the different treatments ranged from INR 123848 to INR 129012, gross income ranged from INR 139020 to INR 432972 per hectare, net income ranged from INR 15172 to INR 304904 per hectare and benefit-cost (B:C) ratio ranged from 1.12:1 to 3.38:1. The gross income, net income and B:C ratio were highest in V1N2K2 (BRBL-01 applied with 120 kg/ha N,80 kg/ha K) and this fertilizer combination was also best for the other variety. Thus, 120 kg N + 80 kg K per hectare could be used for economic benefits to eggplant growers.
