Abstract:

A work was conducted to identify the potential of panchagavya on growth and bio-chemical parameters of Ocimum Sanctum. Panchagavya were given to the tested plant in form of foliar spray. After 60 days, growth parameters such as shoot length, root length, total plant height, leaf area, number of the leaves, fresh and dried weight and biochemical parameters such as starch, glucose, protein, chlorophyll content were observed in the treated plants. Foliar application of 2%, 4%, 6% and 8% (T1, T2, T3 and T4) enhanced the overall growth and physiology of Ocimum Sanctum. But, there was an appreciable increase in growth and biochemical parameters in the treated plants that received 8% (T4) when compared to other treatment and control. This might may be due to synergistic and cumulative effect of qualitative and quantitative active ingredients such as micro and macro elements, vitamins and phytohormones present in the Panchagavya. Thus, Panchagavya could serve as an promising effective organic biostumulant to replace the synthetic fertilizers for sustainable agriculture.
