Abstract:

The present study was conducted in the experimental plot at Main Agricultural Research Station (MARS), College of Agriculture, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, Karnataka during 2014-15 and 2015-16 on “Integrated nutrient management studies in banana cv. Grand Naine (AAA)” through application of different combination of organic and inorganic manures with green manure, Azospirillum and PSB. The results indicated that, application of plants with Vermicompost equivalent to 40 % RDN (24.20 t/ha) + Chemical fertilizer (Urea 535.73 kg/ ha) equivalent to 40 % RDN + Green manure (sunnhemp @ 8.88 t/ha) and Azospirillum (30.86 kg/ha) equivalent to 20 % RDN + PSB (30.86 kg/ha) (T7) recorded the highest growth parameters [pseudostem height (205.05cm), pseudostem girth (27.47cm), number of leaves (16.00), the least number of days taken for shooting (190.65) and total crop duration(318.89)], yield parameters [bunch weight (26.94 kg), number of hands per bunch (11.75), finger weight (137.38 g), finger length (17.75 cm) and yield per ha (66.02 t)] and the NPK contents in banana leaf, fruit and pseudostem at harvest (3.25%, 0.32% and 2.87 % in leaf, 3.27%, 0.32% and 3.15% in fruit and 3.43%, 0.34% and 3.02% in pseudo stem respectively) followed by T10 and T11 treatments.
