Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted to study the “Effect of levels of FYM, fertilizers and biofertilizers on growth attributes of onion (Allium cepa L.) cv. N-53” in loamy sand soils of the Horticulture farm, S.K.R.A.U. College of Agriculture, Bikaner during rabi 2015-16 and 2016-17. The experiment comprising of 27 treatment combinations and replicated three times, was laid out in RBD with three fertility levels (0, 50 and 100% of recommended dose of NPK), three treatments of organic manure (control, FYM @ 20 t
ha-1 and FYM @ 10 t ha-1) and three bio-fertilizers (No inoculation, PSB inoculation and Azospirillum inoculation) were applied in the plots. The results of the study have clearly shown that application of inorganic fertilizers @ 100% RDF significantly increased all the growth parameters (Plant height, number of leaves, chlorophyll content in leaves and, fresh and dry weight of leaves) similarly followed by FYM @ 20 t ha-1 over the other treatments in the respective groups. Moreover, Application of Azospirillum treatment was also found significantly in all the growth attributes of onion bulbs over the control but is was statistically at par with PSB. Further it may be concluded that application of 100% RD of NPK + 20 t ha-1 FYM is worth recommendable for farmers of arid region to make better growth and development of onion in nutrient deficient soil of arid region.
