Abstract:
The most significant crops in hilly areas are cabbage and capsicum, which can also help the mountainous region’s economy and provide good returns for small and marginal farmers. The current research entitled, Influence of different nutrient sources and nanoparticles (TiO2) on quality parameters of cabbage and capsicum was conducted between 2021–2022 on the research farm of the Department of Soil Science and Water Management in Nauni, Solan. There were thirteen different treatments combinations included in the study comprising T1 as control i.e., 100% RDN through chemical fertilizers, from T2 to T13 contains 100% RDN through chemical fertilizers and also in combination of 50-50% RDN through chemical fertilizers and vermicompost on nitrogen equivalence basis along with TiO2 application as seed treatment and foliar spray with concentration of 50, 100 and 150 ppm in capsicum and 500, 1000 and 1500 ppm in cabbage, that were replicated three times in Randomized Block Design. The results demonstrated that the polar diameter, equatorial diameter, fruit shape index and pericarp thickness of cabbage and capsicum fruits were non-significantly affected by different nutrient sources (chemical fertilizers and vermicompost) when combined with TiO2 nanoparticles applied as seed treatment or foliar spray.
