Abstract:

The investigation was undertaken during kharif season 2016 at Shaheed Gundadhoor College of Agriculture and Research Station, Jagdalpur, Bastar (Chhattisgarh). The experiment was laid out in a factorial randomized complete block design with the treatments comprised of four levels of fertilizers (N0P0K0, N30P20K30, N60P40K60 and N90P60K90 kg ha-1) and four levels of vermicompost (0, 10, 20 and 30 t ha-1) with three replications. Individual application of fertilizer @ N60P40K60 andvermicompost @ 20 t ha-1 had significantly increased the number of leaves per plant, plant height and leaf area index of tikhur as compared to control and primary rhizome yield, secondary rhizome yield, total rhizome yield, gross and net return as compared to fertilizer N30P20K30 and vermicompost @ 10 t ha-1. The increase in fertilizer dose up to N60P40K60 had significantly increased and increase in vermicompost dose up to 20 kg ha-1 significantly decreased the gross and net benefit: cost ratio of tikhur. The interaction of N60P40K60 with 20 t ha-1 vermicompost was found superior in case of total rhizome yield, gross and net return whereas, gross and net benefit: cost ratio was found superior under interaction of N60P40K60 with 0 t ha-1 vermicompost.
