Author(s):

Abstract:
The main aim of this experiment was to study the effect of integrated nutrient management on growth and yield attributes of bhendi variety Arka Anamika. Different traits like plant height, number of branches, days to first flowering, number of flowers per plant, number of pods per plant, pod length, pod girth and pod weight were recorded in this study. Among the ten treatments, (T9)- FYM (6.25 t/ha) + sheep and goat manure (1.25 t/ha) + poultry manure (1.25 t/ha) + vermicompost (1.25 t/ha) with recommended dose of fertilizers was found to influence the vegetative growth parameters like plant height (102.8 cm), number of leaves (14) and number of branches per plant (7). Similarly this treatment recorded higher number of flowers (25.1), higher number of pods (22.1), higher pod weight (17.8 g), pod length (16.4 cm) and pod diameter (3.4 cm). With regard to yield, (T9) - FYM (6.25 t/ha) + sheep and goat manure (1.25 t/ha) + poultry manure (1.25 t/ha) + vermicompost (1.25 t/ha) with recommended dose of fertilizer recorded higher yield (5.6 t/ha) in bhendi. This study showed the integrated nutrient management used to get sustainable yield.
