Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during kharif 2013 and rabi 2013-14 to evaluate the best combination of organic and inorganic sources of nutrients for maximizing yield. Combined application of poultry manure 5 t ha-1 and 75% recommended dose of NPK recorded higher fruit yield (33.6 t ha-1) and curd yield (29.3 t ha-1) followed by combined application of sewage sludge 5 t ha-1 and 75% recommended dose of NPK. Experimental results revealed that the concentration and uptake of major nutrients by brinjal and cauliflower plant parts were significantly influenced by the application of organic manures along with inorganic fertilizers. In both the seasons highest values for net income noted for treatment involving combined use of poultry manure 5 t ha-1 + 75% RDF (Rs.301369 ha-1), whereas the highest benefit: cost ratio (2.27) were noted for sewage sludge 5 t ha-1 + 75% RDF.
