Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out at the experimental farm of SASRD, Medziphema Campus, Nagaland University, during October, 2010 to May, 2011 using Randomized Block Design to evaluate the integrated effect of chemical fertilizers, organic manures and biofertilizers on yield and quality of chilli under the foothill condition of Nagaland. Results of the twelve treatment combination field experiment revealed that integrated application of chemical fertilizers, organic manures and biofertilizers significantly increased the yield and quality, characters of chilli over control. Apart from temperature, soil moisture and photoperiod, nutrition is one of the paramount factors which the reproductive development in chilli. Use of organic manures was suggested in pepper cultivation. The efficacies of Vermicompost, pig manure, poultry manure, farmyard manure, biofertilizer (Azospirillum and phosphotika), NPK etc, in improving quality of the plants and increasing the yield and quality of fruit was well documented. The use of organic manures corrects multiple deficiency and sectional elements improve physical, chemical and biological property of soil as well as number of fruit plant-1 (99.44), fruit weight (3.30 g), fruit length (8.90 cm), fruit diameter (1.20 cm), pod yield (194.70 q ha-1), TSS (5.10 º Brix) and vitamin C (247.16 mg/100g) were recorded with the conjoint application of 50% NPK + 50% FYM + Biofertilizers.
