Abstract:

Field investigation was carried out to study the effect of integrated nutrient management on growth and yield parameters in potato var. Kufri Baharunder Western Haryana condition during 2015-2017. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with twelve nutrient management practices organic manures, viz. farmyard manure (FYM), vermicompost (VC), neem cake (NC) and their combinations with inorganic fertilizers. Growth parameters like plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of stems per plant, fresh and dry weight of leaves per plant and yield attributing parameters like fresh and dry weight of tuber per plant and total yield per hectare increased with the application of vermicompost in different combination rates with inorganic fertilizer was much better than applying of neem cake one and the using of farmyard manure with them in tries combinations were the most effective treatments comparing with the others. However, highest values for number of tuber per plant and per plot as well as tuber yield per plot and per hectare was recorded on application of fertilizer mixture of 50% recommended nitrogen + 25% recommended nitrogen through FYM @ 7.5 t/ha + 25% recommended nitrogen through VC @ 2.25 t/ha was the most effective treatment followed by 75% recommended nitrogen + 25% recommended nitrogen through VC @ 2.25t/ha, respectively. The highest dry matter (18.84%) and maximum specific gravity (1.093) was recorded on application of 50% recommended nitrogen + 25% recommended nitrogen through FYM @ 7.5 t/ha + 25% recommended nitrogen through VC @ 2.25 t/ha.
