Abstract:

Pineapple is an important fruit crop and West Bengal is the leader in pineapple production in India. In West Bengal the commercial cultivars is Kew under Smooth Cayenne group which suitable for processing purpose. Table purpose cultivars like Queen is being grown as home stead condition in some pockets of West Bengal. Mauritius cultivar (Queen Group) of pineapple was introduced first time in West Bengal from the south India and its growth performance under the integrated nutrient management practices was assessed in this present experiment. The experiment was conducted at farmers field near Bidhannagar area of Siliguri under the Darjeeling district from 2014-16. The experiment was conducted with Factorial Randomized block design having three factors- Chemical fertilizer (Factor A), organic manure (Factor B) and bio-fertilizer (Factor C) and eighteen treatment combination with three replication. It is found from the present experiment that the treatment combinations having chemical fertilizer, organic manure and bio-fertilizers shows better performance than the other treatment combinations. The plant height, canopy spread, number of leaves, D-leaf length, D-leaf breadth, and leaf area was recorded highest in T12 (Chemical 75% RDF + Vermicompost + Bio-fertilizer).
