Abstract:

The present investigation has been carried out to find out the most effective organic source for better plant growth attributing characters of ashwagandha (Withania somnifera Dunal.). The experimental findings were taken on plant growth attributing characters. In present study growth attributing characters such as plant height (40.60 cm) was found significantly superior with application of vermicompost (5 ton/ha) has been found inferior in control (16.40 cm). Data on plant spread (cm2) indicated that non-significant variation observed the maximum plant spread (24.20 cm2) was measured with the application of vermicompost (5 ton/ha). Number of branches per plant indicated that significant variation observed with the application of various organic treatments. The maximum number of branches per plant (5.13) was found with the application of vermicompost (5 ton/ha) as compared to other organic treatments and all the vermicompost doses were significantly superior over the control. Plant and stem length data observed with the application of different organic treatments. The maximum stem length (37.40 cm) was found in the application of vermicompost (5 ton/ha) as compared to other organic treatments and all the vermicompost doses were significantly superior over the control.
