Abstract:

A study was undertaken to assess the effect of organic nutrient sources on soil nutrient status, NPK uptake and viable bacterial count in European carrot. The experiment was conducted at Organic Block of Experimental Farm, Department of Vegetable Science, Dr YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan, (HP) in the Rabi season of 2017. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) Factorial with sixteen treatments in three replication. Treatments comprised combination of four levels of organic manure and organic liquid formulations. The results revealed that combined application of vermicompost 5 t/ha + Jeevamrit – drenching @ 5 % + Panchgavya – spray @ 3 % exhibited significant higher values for soil nutrient status and NPK uptake. Highest viable bacterial count was also obtained under this treatment. Therefore, vermicompost along with Jeevamrit and Panchgavya can be recommended for sustainable production of carrot and to nourish soil fertility under mid-hills condition of Himachal Pradesh.
