Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Vegetables block, College of Horticulture, Anantharajupeta, Andhra Pradesh to study the influence of organic and inorganic sources of nitrogen on growth and yield of radish (Raphanus sativus L.) during Rabi, 2018. The experiment consists of 14 treatments including recommended dose of inorganic fertilizers, FYM, vermicompost, neem cake in different combinations and absolute control. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with three replications. The growth parameters were recorded at 30DAS, 45DAS and at harvest. Plant height, leaf length, leaf area, fresh and dry weight of shoot, root length, root diameter, fresh weight and dry weight of root, total biomass per plant, root shoot ratio and root yield were significantly increased by the application of organic and inorganic sources of nitrogen and recorded maximum with treatment T7 i.e., 75% RDN + 25% N through neem cake. The study suggested that application of 75% RDN + 25% N through neem cake followed by recommended dose of inorganic fertilizers was found more beneficial and significantly improved growth and yield of radish.
