Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of organic liquid formulations on growth and yield of capsicum at Agricultural Research Station, Arsikere, Karnataka. India. There were 12 treatment combinations consisting of three factors viz., Jeevamrutha (2 levels), Cow urine (2 levels) and Panchagavya (3 levels). Among different organic liquid formulations, application of jeevamrutha recorded significantly higher plant height (20.68, 26.56, 28.88, 30.95 cm at 30, 60, 90 DAT and at harvest, respectively), number of branches per plant (5.23, 5.46, 5.83, 6.47 at 30, 60, 90 DAT and at harvest, respectively), number of fruits per plant (4.43, 5.41, 6.40, 9.0, 10.34, 8.19, 6.38 at 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 DAT, respectively) and fruit yield (413.14, 610.49, 747.20, 2124.32, 1740.69, 1361.4, 854.35 g at 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 DAT, respectively). Significantly higher plant height (20.49, 26.14, 28.45, 29.72 cm at 30, 60, 90 DAT and at harvest, respectively), number of branches per plant (5.0, 5.27, 5.64, 6.10 at 30, 60, 90 DAT and at harvest, respectively), number of fruits per plant (4.32, 5.22, 6.15, 8.82, 10.24, 8.08, 6.19 at 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 DAT, respectively) and fruit yield (395.1, 583.98, 721.21, 2036.95, 1666.84, 1308.39, 823.69 g at 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 DAT, respectively) were recorded with the application of cow urine. Panchagavya 6 per cent spray recorded significantly higher plant height (20.08, 27.24, 28.19, 29.97 cm at 30, 60, 90 DAT and harvest, respectively), number of branches per plant (5.17, 5.5, 5.92, 6.36 at 30, 60, 90 DAT and harvest, respectively), number of fruits per plant (4.43, 5.41, 6.29, 8.78, 10.42, 8.43, 6.97 and at 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 DAT, respectively) and fruit yield per plant (390.04, 582.66, 713.86, 2067.66, 1660.78, 1324.76, 811.28 g at 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 DAT, respectively).
