Abstract:

A greenhouse pot experiment was conducted at the Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Institute of agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi to study of the effect of iodine fertilization (Iodine and Iodates) the levels (0.0. 1.0.2.5 and 5.0 mg kg-1,) in combination of recommended dose of Nitrogen Phosphorus, Potassium and Nitrogen Phosphorus, Potassium With Farm Yard Manure on Calcium, Magnesium and Sulphur content in spinach (Spinacea oleracea L.) Fortification of iodine with the application of potassium iodide/iodine in spinach with recommended doses of fertilizers (NPK)/NPK + FYM significantly improved the Secondary nutrient content (Calcium, Magnesium and Sulphur) in Spinace leaves. A increasing trend were observed in the sulphur content of spinach leaf when iodine applied with recommended dose of NPK at both the harvesting stages particularly in the form of iodate and the highest sulphur content was observed @ 5.0 mg kg-1 in both the forms of iodine. Application of FYM and inorganic fertilizers alone and in combination had a significant effect on sulphur content. Thus, the overall result suggests that spinach can be cultivated in soil treated with chemical fertilizer in combination with Farm Yard Manure for higher yield and to improve the soil fertility and productivity.
