In the diversified farming system, integrated nutrient management under different crop geometry along with growth regulators is the most appropriate approach to solve various issues related to productivity, quality as well as sustainability in efficient and economic way. Cabbage is well known for its nutritive and health benefits. A field experiments were conducted to study the effect of vermicompost, inorganic fertilizers and growth retardant (cycocel) with different spacing on cabbage carried out in factorial randomized block design at Experimental Farm of Bundelkhand University, Jhansi (U.P.) during rabi season 2017-18 and 2018-19.Results indicated that yield and yield contributing components of cabbage cultivar Pusa Drum Head were found to be highest and significant in the treatment where 50% RDF (Inorganic Fertilizer) + 50% Organic (vermicompost) were applied at wider crop geometry (45cm x 45cm spacing) along with spraying of 300 ppm cycocel (growth retardant). The head yield of cabbage was positively correlated with various yield components. Application of vermicompost along with inorganic fertilizers with cycocel treatment reduces the days taken to head maturity. The experimental findings indicated that reduction in the amount of inorganic fertilizer was not detrimental to total yield to cabbage. So 50% doses of recommended fertilizer would be supplemented with vermicompost. It is also evident that integration of vermicompost and inorganic fertilizer at wider spacing under cycocel treatment enhances the productivity of cabbage beside sustaining soil fertility status.
