Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted at the Agronomy Research Farm, College of Agriculture, S.K. Rajasthan Agricultural University, Bikaner during rabi seasons of 2009-10 and 2010-11 to study the effect of vermicompost, N and P levels on economics of coriander and soil heath. Twenty seven treatment combinations i.e. three levels of vermicompost (control, 2.5 and 5.0 t ha-1), three levels of nitrogen (control, 40 and 80 kg ha-1) as main plot treatment and three levels of phosphorus (control, 20 and 40 kg P2O5 ha-1) as sub plot treatment were laid out in split plot design with three replications. From the results, among all the treatment combinations application of vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1 with N level @ 40 kg/ ha and P level 20 kg/ha significantly increased net returns and B:C ratio of coriander. Application of vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1 with N level @ 40 kg/ ha and P level 20 kg/ha also improve nutrient status of soil.
