Abstract:

An experimental field trials was conducted during the rabi season of 2016-2017 at the Experimental field of SHUATS, Allahabad to evaluate the “Effect of different levels of vermicompost on soil physical properties of two cultivars of cabbage (Brassica oleracea L.) Under Eastern UP conditions”. The field trial was laid out in random block design with three replications. Each replicate consisted of 10 treatment combinations. The treatments consisted of application of vermicompost with different varieties of Cabbage at different rates viz., T1 = 0t verm/ha + v1 (Magic ball), T2 = 0t verm/ha + v2(F1 hybrid king), T3 = 0.8kg(2t/ha) verm + v1 (Magic ball), T4 = 1.6kg(43t/ha) verm + v1 (Magic ball), T5 = 2.4kg(6t/ha) verm + v1 (Magic ball), T6 = 3.2kg(8t/ha) verm + v1 (Magic ball), T7 = 0.8kg(2t/ha) verm + v2 (F1 hybrid king), T8 = 1.6kg(43t/ha) verm + v2 (F1 hybrid king), T9 =2.4kg(6t/ha) verm + v2 (F1 hybrid king), T10 = 3.2kg(8t/ha) verm + v2 (F1 hybrid king) with a control for each replication. Plot dimensions were 2 x 2 m with a buffer zone of 0.5 m between all plots. A spacing of 30 x 50 cm between the plants was maintained with a total of 30 plots. Significant influenced of vermicompost application were observed on the particle density, bulk density, pore space (%), solid space (%) and WHC. The highest and lowest particle densities were observed in T1 and T6, T10, means it decreases with increasing levels of vermicompost. Same trend goes for bulk density and solid space (%). While water holding capacity and pore space (%) increase with increase in levels of vermicompost.
