Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out on Influence of FYM, Inorganic Fertilizers and Micronutrients on soil nutrient status and plant nutrient contents and their uptake by African marigold. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications consisting three level of FYM (0, 20 and 30 t/ha), four levels of NPK (RDF @ 75, 100 and 125%) and four levels of micronutrients (Control, ZnSO4 @ 0.50%, FeSO4 @ 0.50% and ZnSO4 0.50% + FeSO4 0.50%) thus, making 48 treatment combinations. Application of FYM up to 30 t ha-1 significantly improved N, P, K, Zn and Fe content in plants, available in soil and uptake by plants. Among the different doses of NPK, application of NPK @ 125% RDF recorded significantly higher N, P and K content in plants, available in soil and uptake by plants over rest of treatments during 2011-12 and 2012-13, but uptake of Zn and Fe by plants recorded significantly higher with the treatment of NPK @ 100% RDF during both the years. However, application of ZnSO4 @ 0.5% + FeSO4 @ 0.5% recorded maximum Zn and Fe content in plant and N, P, K, Zn and Fe uptake by plants during the year of 2011-12, 2012-13.
