Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted to develop integrated nutrient management system for higher productivity and profitability of sweet pepper on sustainable basis. The experiment laid out in RBD comprised of 15 different integrated combinations including a recommended practice, all replicated thrice. The study concluded that the conjoint use of 75 % recommended dose of NP + combined application of vermicompost and enriched compost @ 2.5 t/ha + PGPR (T14) along with full recommended potash and FYM as basal application resulted in significantly maximum vegetative growth plant height (60.75 cm) and primary branches (4.07), earliest fruit harvest (62.67 days), fruit weight (54.92 g), number of fruits per plant (27.23) and consequently; the highest pepper fruit yield (367.68 q/ha) with a B:C (2.73:1). Beside this, the T14 also enhanced soil health as envisaged through the increased post-harvest availability of N, P and K by 25.35, 50.79 and 21.93, over the initial content.
