Abstract:
The present investigation the effect of organic and inorganic fertilizers on growth and quality of pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) under precision farming was conducted at PFDC (Precision farming development centre), Department of fruit science, College of Agriculture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya Raipur during the year 2020 – 2021 season on two to three year old pomegranate tree cv. Super bhagwa. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with 10 treatments viz., T0 (100% of RDF as soil application and irrigation through drip), T1 (60% RDF through drip), T2 (80% RDF through drip), T3 (100% RDF through drip), T4 (60% of RDF + Vermiwash through drip (1 litre/ week), T5 (80% of RDF + Vermiwash through drip (1 litre/ week), T6 (60% of RDF + Cow urine through drip (1 litre/ week), T7 (80% of RDF + Cow urine through drip (1 litre/ week), T 8 (60% of RDF + Vermiwash + Cow urine through drip (1 litre/ week) and T9 (80% of RDF + Vermiwash + Cow urine through drip (1 litre/ week)) with three replications. Results revealed that 80% of RDF + Vermiwash + Cow urine through drip (1 litre/ week) recorded significantly highest plant growth (plant height, Average shoot length, number of shoot per plant, plant spread in N-S and E-W, number of flower per plant and 80% of RDF + Vermiwash + Cow urine through drip (1 litre/ week)) recorded significant fruit quality (total soluble solid, acidity, TSS acid ratio, pH, ascorbic acid, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar and total sugar.
