Abstract:

The present experimental field work was conducted during the year 2019-2020 at Campus for Research and Advanced Studies, Dhablan, G.S.S.D.G.S Khalsa College, Patiala. The different sources of fertilizers, organic manures and biofertilizers were integrated into 11 possible treatments. All the treatments have helped in the improvement of growth and tuber yield characteristics. Out of these treatments, where fertilizers have acted as integrated sources of nutrients were significantly registered as maximum effect. Highest plant height (43.76 cm), fresh weight of plant (106.94 g), number of leaves (72.00) and tuber yield (201.15 q ha-1) in potato were recorded in the treatment 75% RDF + Azotobacter + PSB, while the lowest was observed in the control plot. The economics of this experiment was also observed highest under 75% RDF + Azotobacter + PSB as compared to other treatments. Hence, we concluded that the treatment 75% RDF + Azotobacter + PSB is suitable for the soils of Patiala for attaining good yield and productivity.
