Abstract:
The experiment was layout in split plot design with 3 replication. The main plot treatment was 3 varieties viz., Kufri Sinduri (V1), Kufri Chipsona (V2) and Kufri Khyati (V3) and 6 level of integrated nutrient management supply viz., 100% RDF through inorganic fertilizer (N1), 100% RDF + ZnSO4 (N2), 75% RDF + @ 2 tonnes ha-1 Vermicompost (N3), 75% RDF + @ 2 tonnes ha-1 Vermicompost + ZnSO4 (N4), 50% RDF + @ 4 tonnes ha-1 Vermicompost (N5), 50% RDF + @ 4 tonnes ha-1 Vermicompost + ZnSO4 (N6) kept in sub plot. The crop was sown on 10 November, 2020-21. Seed rate of 20 q ha-1 was taken for sowing having a spacing of 60 cm x 20 cm. The results revealed that Kufri Khyati produced significantly taller plants of potato having maximum number of compound leaves plant-1, shoots count plant-1, dry weight of shoots plant-1 and crop growth rate, fresh weight of tuber plant-1, number of tuber plant-1, which finally resulted in to highest yield and economic returns. Next superior variety was Kufri Sinduri. Amongst the integrated nutrient management the application of 100% RDF + ZnSO4, caused significantly taller plant height, and higher number of compound leaves plant-1, shoots count plant-1, dry weight of shoots plant-1 and crop growth rate, fresh weight of tuber plant-1, number of tuber plant-1, which finally gave the highest yield and economic return followed by 100% RDF (through inorganic fertilizer).
