Senapati SK, Patel MK and Sahoo SC
A trial was conducted to find out the best treatment combination for an experiment “Effect of integrated manuring and growth regulators on yield and quality of pineapple” with an objective to get high, uniform yield and quality of pineapple by integrated application of manure and growth regulators. The result revealed that 50% of recommended NPK + 50% of N through organic recycling with vermicmpost + vermiwash + biofertilizers (Azotobacter and Azospirillum)+ NAA @10ppm and 75% of recommended NPK + 25% of N through organic recycling with vermicompost + NAA@10ppm.. Perform best treatment combination with respect to yield and qualitative characters like, Crown length(17.90 cm), Fruit length(15.72cm), TSS(16.55 0Brix ), Fruit Girth (36.50 cm), Pulp content (75.99gm), Pulp peel ratio (5.43), Total sugar (12.84%), reducing sugar(4.96%), Non reducing sugar(8.98%), Ascorbic acid (24.26mg/100gm pulp) and Fruit weight with crown (1362.22 gm), fruit yield per plot (40.59 kg) and yield per ha (45.10 t/ha). Whereas crown weight (261.29 gm) have significant variation found in 50% of recommended NPK + 50% of N through organic recycling with vermicmpost+ vermiwash + biofertilizer(Azotobacter and Azospirillum)+Ethrel @25ppm.
