Abstract:
The field experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design during rabi season of 2017-18 at Research Farm of the Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri Maharashtra. The four levels of N and P application viz. F1- RDF (150:50:50 Kg NPK ha-1), F2-75% RDN + Full dose of P & K + N-Fixer (Azotobacter chroococcum), F3-75% RDP + Full dose of N & K +P-Solublizer (Aspergillus niger) and F4-75% RDN+ 75% RDP+ Full dose of K+ N-Fixer + P-Solubilizer were added as a factor-1 and four foliar applications of micronutrients as a factor-2 replicated thrice. Foliar application of micronutrients S1- Control (Water Spray), S2- Foliar spray of Zinc (ZnSO4@0.5%) and S3- Foliar spray of Boron (Borax @0.2%) and S4- Foliar spray of Zinc and Boron (ZnSO4@0.5%) + (Borax @0.2%)Soil application of fertilizers and bio fertilizers with foliar spray of zinc and boron was showed significant result with respect to yield. The treatment receiving F4S4 (75% RDN+ 75% RDP+ Full dose of K+ N-Fixer + P-Solubilizer and foliar spray of ZnSO4@ 0.5% + Borax @0.2%) showed highest yield (27.21 t ha-1) which was found significantly superior over rest of the treatments except F4S3 treatment combination. Interaction effect of application of fertilizers along with biofertilizers and foliar spray of micronutrients found highest anthocyanin content (14.83 mg 100g-1) and total phenol content (24.95 mg 100g-1) of brinjal fruit significantly increased due to application of 75% RDN + Full dose of P & K + N-Fixer and foliar spray of Zinc and Boron.
