Abstract:

Sustainable agricultural production incorporates the idea that natural resources should be used to generate increased output and incomes, without depleting the natural resource base. Integrated nutrient management (INM) integrates the use of all natural and man- made sources of plant nutrients, so that productivity and nutrient status of food increases in an efficient and environmentally benefiting manner without sacrificing soil productivity of future generations. In the present study, various combination of organic manure (FYM, vermicompost and poultry manure), PGPR were used in combination with varying levels of NPK along with priming of seeds with GA3 100ppm for 48 hrs during the year 2014 and 2015. The observations were recorded on different growth and yield contributing traits. Among different treatment combination T4 gives maximum number of fruits (25.07), yield per plant (2.00kg), and yield per hectare (420.37q), longest harvest duration of 64.83 days and minimum days to flowering (44.25) and marketable maturity (69.33 days). This was closely followed by T6 which results in larger sized fruits (28.78 cm2), more number of laterals (5.37) and vigorous plant (69.87cm). The benefit: cost ratio was obtained higher (2.27) in T4 because of more yield potential and remunerative price. The plots receiving RDF (control) having minimum growth and yield potential and also having lower benefit: cost ratio.
