A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2017-18 to study the effect of various organic and inorganic nutrient sources on yield, quality and uptake of nutrient by cabbage (Brassica oleracea L. var capitata) in acid inceptisol of Meghalaya with eight treatment combinations viz. control (T1), 100% RDF (T2), 100% N FYM (T3), 100% N VC (T4), 50% RDF+ 50% N FYM (T5), 75% RDF+25% N FYM (T6), 50% RDF +50% N VC (T7) and 75% RDF + 25% N VC (T8). The experiment was laid out in RBD and replicated thrice. The experimental soil was having pH 4.87, SOC (%) 1.24, Alkaline KMnO4- N 160 (kg/ha), available P2O5 18.60 (kg/ha) and available K2O 238.4 (kg/ha). The experimental results revealed that treatment T7 of 50% RDF +50% N VC produced highest cabbage yield (60.44t/ha) which was statistically comparable with T5 of 50% RDF+ 50% N FYM (54.33 t/ha). The yield obtained in T5 was almost same as obtained with 100% RDF alone (T2). The quality of cabbage with respect to head compactness, head shape index was also followed the same trend. Moreover, concentration and uptake of N, P, and K were also superior in T7 indicating best suitable option for production of quality cabbage in acid inceptisol of Meghalaya.
