Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during winters 2015-16 to study the effect of inorganic and organic fertilizers on yield and economics of broccoli cv. Green Magic. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with twelve treatments and three replications. Different doses of recommended dose of nitrogen (RDN), Farm yard manure (FYM), Poultry manure, Vermicompost and their combinations are used with all other cultural practices taken uniform. The maximum curd diameter (15.37cm), weight of trimmed curd (413.33g), curd yield per plot (7.44 kg) and curd yield (14.16 t/ha) were recorded in the plants treated with 50% recommended dose of nitrogen(RDN) + 16.6 % farm yard manure (FYM) + 16.6 % Vermicompost + 16.6 % Poultry Manure. Economic returns of the same treatment were also found best in term of gross income, net returns and benefit-cost ratio.


Keywords: Broccoli, Curd, Economics, Poultry manure, Vermicompost.
