Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out during June to September 2018 in Departmental Research Field of Department of Horticulture, SHUATS, Prayagraj. The experiment was conducted in Factorial Randomized Block Design (RBD), with eight treatments, replicated thrice with two varieties of Bottle Gourd. the treatments were T1 (Control (100% RDF)), T2 (75% RDF + 25%FYM), T3 (25% RDF + 75% FYM), T4 (75% RDF + 25% Vermicompost), T5 (25% RDF + 75% Vermicompost), T6 (75% RDF + 25% Poultry manure), T7 (25% RDF + 75% Poultry manure), T8 (25% RDF + 25% FYM + 25% PM + 25% VC). From the present experimental findings it is found that the treatment T5 (25% RDF + 75% Vermicompost) was found superior over other treatments in terms of growth, yield and quality of Bottle gourd. In two varieties of Bottle gourd, variety C.B.H. 11 was found better with different treatments of organic and inorganic fertilizers, in terms of economics maximum gross and net return was recorded in treatment T5, but maximum cost benefit ratio was recorded in treatment T7 and lowest readings was recorded in T0 (Control).
