Abstract:
To get more yield farmers tend to use excessive chemical fertilizers, while current energy crisis prevailing higher prices and lack of proper supply system of fertilizers and deterioration of soil health calls for more efficient nutrient management using conjunctive use of organic manure, inorganic fertilizers and biofertilizer to sustain yield levels. Therefore, two year field trial was conducted during 2015 and 2016 by using Randomized block design. The results revealed that combination of 80% NPKM + 20% N through FYM and VC (50:50) + PGPR recoded higher yield (329.30 and 344.80 q ha-1), total nitrogen uptake (64.57 and 66.01 kg ha-1), phosphorus uptake (9.89 and 10.62 kg ha-1), potassium uptake (51.43 and 55.45 kg ha-1 ), nitrogen use efficiency (17.04 and 29.34 kg kg-1), phosphorus use efficiency (25.50 and 37.83 kg kg-1) and potassium use efficiency (38.0 and 29.36 kg kg-1) with higher B:C ratio (3.42 and 3.61) under cauliflower and capsicum crops, respectively Thus, study suggests that cauliflower and capsicum can be successfully grown under mid hill zone on 80% NPKM + 20% N through FYM and VC (50:50) + PGPR and harvest maximum productivity and profitability besides, improving used efficiency of nutrients.
