Abstract:

Effect of integrated nutrient management on growth, quality and yield of potato (kufri pukhraj) were studied in alluvial soil at experimental farm of lovely professional university 2017-2018. The experiment was laid out in Randomized complete block design with eleven treatments were set and each replicate three times. Totally eleven treatments in which one control, two treatments consist 100% RDF and 75% RDF alone and remaining eight treatments consist combination of inorganic fertilizers and organic manures. Growth attributes and yield attributes were recorded at the time of harvest. Integrated use of synthetic fertilizers, organic manures and biofertilizers showed the significant impact on growth and yield attributes of potato. Result indicate that the application of 75% RDF + 2tonnes ha-1 FYM + 1tones ha-1 Vermicompost + 20kg ha-1 Sulphur + 20kg ha-1 Zinc sulphate + Azotobacter (seed treatment) showed significant positive impact on fresh weight (plant-1), tuber weight (plant-1), tuber numbers (plant-1) and tuber yield (tonnes ha-1) as compared to 100% RDF and control. The application of 100% RDF + 2tonnes ha-1 FYM + 1tones ha-1 Vermicompost + 20kg ha-1 Sulphur + 20kg ha-1 Zinc sulphate showed positive impact on dry weight. Application of 75% RDF + 2tonnes ha-1 FYM + 1tones ha-1 Vermicompost + 20kg ha-1 Sulphur + 20kg ha-1 Zinc sulphate + Azotobacter (seed treatment) was more remunerative for sustainable production of potato.
