Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out to study the “Integrated nutrient management (INM) on availability of nutrients in soil, nutrient uptake and yield of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) cv. Gujarat Tomato-2”during rabi season of 2011-12 and 2012-13 at the Regional Horticultural Research Station, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari, Gujarat, India. The experiment was conducted on fixed plot site with a set of twelve treatments. Among different INM treatments, FYM 20 t ha-1 + 100 % RDF had significantly the highest available N (255, 259 and 257 kg ha-1), P2O5(63.5, 61.9 and 62.7 kg ha-1), K2O (327, 322 and 325 kg ha-1) nutrient in soil after harvest, N (1.54, 1.56 and 1.55 %), P2O5 (0.49, 0.50 and 0.50 %), K2O (1.30, 1.33 and 1.32 %) nutrient content in tomato plant, total nutrient uptake N (136, 145 and 140 kg ha-1), P (45.2, 49.8 and 47.5 kg ha-1), K (66, 76 and 71 kg ha-1), fruit yield plant-1(1.49, 1.58 and 1.54 kg) and fruit yield plot-1(29.86, 31.56 and 30.71 kg) during 2011-12, 2012-13 and pooled analysis. So far nutrients uptake was concerned, remarkable increase in values of total uptake of nutrients viz., N, P and K by tomato in the treatment combination of 100 % RDF + FYM 20 t ha-1 (T1). Different INM treatments had non-significant effects on N, P and K contents.
