Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out during November, 2018 to February, 2019 in Departmental Research Field of Department of Horticulture, SHUATS, Prayagraj. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design (RBD), with ten treatments of Micronutrients, the treatments were replicated thrice.The treatments were T0 (Control), T1 (Boron 0.2% + RDF), T2 (Boron 0.4% + RDF), T3 (Boron 0.6% + RDF), T4 (Zinc 0.2% + RDF), T5 (Zinc 0.4% + RDF), T6 (Zinc 0.6% + RDF), T7 (Iron 0.2% + RDF), T8 (Iron 0.4% + RDF) and T9 (Iron 0.6% + RDF). From the present investigation it is found that the treatment T5(Zinc 0.4% + RDF) found best in terms of Plant Growth and Yield of Calendula followed by treatment T4(Zinc 0.2% + RDF). In terms of economics of different treatments, maximum Gross Return, Net Return and Cost Benefit ratiowas found in T5 (Zinc 0.4% + RDF)followed by treatment T4 (Zinc 0.2% + RDF) where as minimum Plant growth and yield was recorded in treatment T0(Control) but minimum cost benefit ratio was recorded in treatment T0 (Control).
