Abstract:

An investigation was carried out to study the effect of organic manures and bio-inoculants (Azatobacter, Azospirillum, PSB and VAM) on growth, yield and quality of ashwagandha by comparing with RDF at K.R.C.C.H. College of Arabhavi. The results showed that growth parameters viz., plant height (74.20 cm), stem diameter (0.85 cm), plant spread (N-S (37.60 cm) and E-W (38.07 cm)) and number of primary branches (8.80) recorded maximum with the application of RDF + VAM and yield parameters viz., number of berries per plant (219.33), seed yield (3.15 q/ha), fresh root (19.58 q/ha) and dry root yield (5.88 q/ha) recorded maximum with the application of RDF + VAM, however the organic treatment T7 have shown on par results in growth and yield parameters.
