Abstract:

The investigation was undertaken during kharif season 2016 at Shaheed Gundadhoor College of Agriculture and Research Station (IGKV) Kumharawand, Jagdalpur, Bastar (C.G.). The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Complete Block Design (FRCBD) with the treatments comprised of four levels of fertilizers (N0P0K0, N30P20K30, N60P40K60 and N90P60K90 kg ha-1) and four levels of vermicompost (0, 10, 20 and 30 t ha-1) and three replications. Application of organic and inorganic nutrients had significant effect on soil electrical conductivity, cation exchange capacity, available nitrogen, available phosphorus and available potassium. However organic nutrients had significant effect on soil organic carbon, bulk density of soil, soil porosity %, available sulphur, available calcium and available magnesium. The highest value of all these parameters found in fertilizers levels @ N90P60K90 kg ha-1 and vermicompost @ 30 t ha-1 except soil electrical conductivity highest found due to application of fertilizer @ N0P0K0kg ha-1 and vermicompost @ 30 t ha-1. The interaction effect of fertilizer with vermicompost had not found significant on all the observation.
