Abstract:
It has become feasible to produce high quality garlic through integrated farming in recent decades. The purpose of this study was to determine how the combination of organic and natural fertilizers influenced garlic growth and yield. For this, a field experiment was carried out during Rabi season of 2016 and 2017 to evaluate the effectiveness of different organic manures in combination with inorganic manures on garlic growth and yield attributes. It was found that 50 percent of the recommended nutrients (RDN) were applied to the field during the preparation process using farmyard manure (FYM) and vermicompost along with Jeevamrut and 50 percent of the recommended NPK provided the best results in terms of bulb weight, diameter, and yield. Using Beejamrut along with Jeevamrut plus FYM as a basal dose had the highest Benefit to Cost ratio (B: C). However, the maximum returns were achieved when 50 percent of the recommended nutrients (RDN) were applied during field preparation with farmyard manure (FYM) and vermicompost, plus Jeevamrut and 50 percent NPK. This study concluded that 50 percent of the recommended nutrients (RDN) were applied through farmyard manure and vermicompost during field preparation + Jeevamrut + 50 percent of the recommended NPK was the most effective for achieving higher garlic yields and better returns.
