Abstract:

Field experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of organic manuring practices to improve the growth and yield of palak (Beta vulgaris var. bengalensis Hort.) during October 2015 - January 2016 and February 2016 - April, 2016 in the farmer’s field located at Sandayagoundampalayam in Thondammutur block of Coimbatore district. The experiment was conducted with ten treatments and three replications. Of all the treatments the organic treatments of soil application with vermicompost (4t/ha) + liquid nitrogen biofertilizer (Azospirullum 200ml/acre) + foliar spray of vermiwash (3%) has shown the significant improvement in growth and yield parameters than other treatments. The treatment recorded the highest plant height (46.69 cm), number of leaves (23.6), leaf length (23.21 cm), leaf width (15.83 cm), canopy spread in east-west (47.09 cm) and canopy spread north – south direction(47.84 cm) on 65 DAS over the control treatment and the yield parameters viz., fresh weight of leaves per plant(404.15 g), yield per plot (13.15kg/plot) and yield per hectare (7732.87kg/ha) and the lowest growth and yield characters were recorded by inorganic treatment of soil application with straight fertilizer at 100% RDF.
