Abstract:

Black night shade (Solanum nigrum L.) belongs to the family ‘Solanaceae’ is an important medicinal plant which has tremendous medicinal value. The plant contains alkaloids like solamargine, solanigrine and solasonine. The herb is credited with emollient, antiseptic, leucoderma, piles, ulcer, asthma and eye troubles. Makoi leaves are also known to suppress carcinogenesis and have high market value. Farmers growing this crop will also get high net return. A field experiment was carried out at HC&RI, TNAU, Coimbatore during 2012-13 to study the effect of organic manures and biofertilizers on Black night shade on quality parameters. Soil application of different graded levels of organic manures and biofertilizers was applied i.e., T1- FYM @ 8t/ha + foliar spray of 1% PPFM, T2- T1+Azophos @ 2kg/ha, T3- T1+Azophosmet @ 2kg/ha, T4- Vermicompost @ 6t/ha + foliar spray of 1% PPFM, T5- T4+Azophos @ 2kg/ha, T6- T4+Azophosmet@ 2kg/ha, T7- Poultry manure @ 4t/ha + foliar spray of 1% PPFM, T8- T7+Azophos @ 2kg/ha and T9- T7+Azophosmet@ 2kg/ha was carried with three replications. Foliar spraying of 1% PPFM was taken up at 45th day after sowing and later at 15 days after first and second harvest i.e., 75 and 105 DAS. The highest Solasodine content (0.4%) was observed in the treatment T6. The increase may be due to synergistic and compatible effect of organic manures and biofertilizers application.
