Abstract:

A field study was carried out on a red loamy soils of Bangalore for year (2015-2016) to study the effect of different fertilizer sources and mulching on yield, nutrient uptake in hybrid chilli cultivar Arka meghana (Capsicum annuum L.). The trial included nine treatments comprising varying rates and sources of fertilizers, tested with or without mulching. Application of recommended dose of fertilizer (180:120:180 kg NPK/ha) through fertigation using water-soluble fertilizers resulted in higher higher number fruits (142) per plant, fruit length (11.3 cm), fruit girth (4.75 cm), fruit weight (1.29 g), fruit yield per plant (184.11g), fruit yield per hectare (5.03 t ha-1), followed by 100% normal fertilizers fertigation with mulching. Application of fertilizers both water soluble as well as normal fertilizers through fertigation with mulching recorded higher uptake of N, P and K at compared to RDF soil application without mulching.
