Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out at Agronomy Farm, Dr. PDKV, Akola during Rabi season of 2017-18 on clayey soil. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with nine treatment combinations and four replications. Treatments consist of three nitrogen sources viz., 100% N through urea, 50% N through FYM + 50% N through urea and 50% N through FYM + 50% N through Vermicompost + Biofertilizers and three vegetables viz., Coriander, Fenugreek and Spinach. Experimental results revealed that higher chlorophyll content of the leaves of all vegetables was observed with application of 50% N through FYM + 50% N through urea than other nitrogen sources. In case of shelf life of leafy vegetables physiological weight loss was lowest which was produced by the application of 50% N through FYM + 50% N through Vermicompost + Biofertilizers. Fenugreek recorded lowest physiological weight loss in refrigerator, covered with wet cloth and at room temperature at 24 and 48 hours. Dark green colour of all vegetables was acceptable by 40% respondents, better aroma of all leafy vegetables, was experienced by 42% respondents and good taste was noted by 50% respondents which were resulted by the application of 50% N through FYM + 50% N though Vermicompost + Biofertilizers.
