Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Response of organic manures on vegetative growth and yield parameters of banana (Musa spp.) cultivars G-nine and Cavendish Dwarf under popular based agro- forestry system” was laid out on the experimental site of College of Forestry, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj during 2016-2017. The experimental field was prepared by thorough ploughing harrowing and leveling to get a loose friable texture and a leveled topography. Pits of 45x45 x45 cm size were dug at a spacing of 1.8 x 1.8m and allowed to expose to sunlight for one week before planting of tissue culture plants. After preparation land and layout of the experiment FYM, Vermicompost, Neem Coated Urea and Poultry Manure were incorporated to soil as per treatment in all three replications. The treatments included were T1 FYM 100%+ Cavendish Dwarf, T2 Vermicompost 100%+ Cavendish Dwarf, T3 Neem Coated Urea 100%+ Cavendish Dwarf and T4 Poultry Manure 100%+ Cavendish Dwarf applied directly to the pits prior to planting. Observations on growth parameters were recorded at various stages of crop growth and yield of banana (Musa spp.) cultivars G-nine and Cavendish Dwarf under popular based agro- forestry system. The treatment T6 Vermicompost 100%+Grade nine(G-9) registered better yield parameters such as growth and yield and parameters like plant height (cm), number leaves plant-1, plant girth (cm), shooting stage (days), bunch weight (kg), number of hand bunch-1, no. of fingers hand-1, total no. of finger bunch-1, average fruit length (cm),average fruit width (cm) and fruit yield (t ha-1) of Banana. So application of this organic manure fertilizer combination can be recommended to growers after few more conjunctive trials.
