Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Rabi 2016-17 at Experimental Farm of Division of Vegetable Science SKUAST-K Shalimar Campus to find out the effect of organic manures and bio-fertilizers on growth and yield of Lettuce cv. LS-2. The experiment was laid out in RCBD with inorganic fertilizers, three types of both organic manures and bio-fertilizers constituting 13 treatments combinations in all. The investigation revealed that the Treatment T9, (60 kg N ha-1 + 45 kg P ha-1+ 30 kg K ha-1+ Vermicompost (4 t ha-1) + Biofertilizers @ 7.5 l ha­­-1) recorded higher values for plant height (37.84 cm), plant spread (39.91 cm), minimum no. of days to first harvest (40), leaf area (280.42 cm2), no. of leaves plant-1 (48.15), average leaf weight (13.95 g), leaf weight plant-1 (518.25 g), leaf yield plot-1 (9.81 kg) and leaf yield ha-1 (23.83 t).
