Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at new orchard, Department of Horticulture, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during 2014-15 and 2015-16 on “Integrated nutrient management studies in banana cv. Grand Naine (AAA)” through application of different combination of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers with green manure, Azospirillum and PSB. The results revealed that, Vermicompost equivalent to 40 % RDN (24.20 t/ha) + Urea equivalent to 40 % RDN (535.73 kg/ ha) + 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), leaf area (8.87 m2), leaf area index (2.74), 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), plot yield (85.57 kg), yield per ha (66.02 t)] and quality parameters [TSS (23.520 brix), total sugars (20.30%), reducing sugars (20.30 %), non-reducing sugars (17.87%), pulp to peel ratio (3.81) shelf life (6.33 days) and the least starch (3.67 %) and titrable acidity (0.25)] followed by T10 (Agrigold combination) and T11 (Bhumilabh combination) treatments.
