Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during rabi season 2013-14 at the horticulture farm, S.K.N. Collage of agriculture, Jobner (Rajasthan) to study the effect of bio-organics and mineral nutrients on performance of sprouting broccoli. The experiment consisted of four levels of bio-organics (control, vermicompost @ 5 t/ha, vermicompost @ 2.5 t /ha + FYM @ 5 t/ha and vermicompost @ 2.5 t/ha + FYM @ 5 t/ha + Azospirillum + PSB) and four levels of mineral nutrients (Control, Sulphur @ 40 kg/ha, Sulphur @ 40 kg/ha + Zinc @ 5 kg/ha and Sulphur @ 40 kg/ha + Zinc @ 5 kg/ha + Boron @ 1.5 kg/ha) in factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications. The application of vermicompost @ 2.5 t/ha + FYM @ 5 t/ha + Azospirillum + PSB along with sulphur @ 40 kg/ha + zinc @ 5 kg/ha + boron @ 1.5 kg/ha proved to be the best treatment combination in terms of average weight of central head, average weight of secondary heads, diameter of head, total head yield, crude protin content, vitamin-C content in head and net return of sprouting broccoli. The combination produced 337.28 q/ha head yield along with net return of Rs.609982 per ha.
