Abstract:
Experiments were conducted in rabi season 2019-20 and 2020-21 at Horticulture Farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Jaipur). Experiments laid out in RBD having twenty five treatments with three replications. The treatment consisted of five micronutrients (control, Borax at 15 kg/ha, Zinc sulphate at 25 kg/ha, Ammonium molybdate at 1.5 kg/ha and Manganese sulphate at 10 kg/ha) and five organics (control, Cow urine 10%, Panchagavya 5%, Vermiwash 10% and Azotobacter). The results indicated that soil application of zinc sulphate to the sprouting broccoli significantly increased biochemicals in curd i.e. TSS (10.88 0Brix), protein (2.30 %) content, nitrogen (0.368 %), potassium (0.266 %) and zinc (44.22 ppm) content. Similarly, foliar application of Panchagavya at 5% also increased the biochemicals in curd upto the level of significance viz., TSS (11.69 0Brix), protein (2.40 %) content, nitrogen (0.376 %), phosphorus (0.073 %), potassium (0.282 %), boron (16.99 ppm), zinc (38.89 ppm), molybdenum (1.97 ppm) and manganese (66.82 ppm) content in pooled analysis of both years. The findings were in conclusion that soil application of zinc sulphate at 25 kg/ha and foliar application of Panchagavya at 5% have the potential effect to improve quality parameters in sprouting broccoli.
