Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif, season 2012 to study the effect of organic manures and different levels of NPK on growth and yield of Bottle gourd. The experiment consisting of 16 treatments viz., four levels of NPK (control, 100:50:50, 80:40:40 and 60:30:30) and organic manures (control, vermicompost, poultry manure and FYM) factorial designed in RBD with three replications. Results indicated that application of NPK (100:50:50) + vermicompost (5.0 t/ha) was recorded minimum days taken to appearance of first female flower, maximum length of main vine (m), number of primary branches per vine, length and width of leaf (cm) 65 days after sowing, per cent fruit set, number of fruit per vine, length and girth of fruit, weight of fruit, total yield per vine, yield and return rupees investment.


Keywords: Bottle gourd, poultry manure, vermicompost
