Abstract:
Among the aromatic herbs sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum) has very good economic importance and its consumption both in nature is used for industrial processing. The essential oil is valued in the international market and widely used in the industries of condiments, cosmetics and medicinal. The present study entitled “Effect of Different Organic manure and Sulphur along with chemical fertilizer (RDF) on Oil yield of Tulsi (Ocimum basilicum L) under Acacia mangium based multitier Agroforestry system.” was executed at instructional farm of Forestry Department, IGKV, Raipur (CG) during 2018-19 in this experiment total 10 treatments were designed in various combination of manure and fertilizer and application of sulphur with intercropping of Tulsi under multitier agroforestry system and as a sole crop. Statistical designed was made as RBD (Random Block Design).the outcome showed that the highest herbage yield (3735.83 kg/ha) in first harvesting and the 2nd harvesting the highest herbage yield is (2307.5kg ha) Oil yield of Ocimum basilicum in T1 (27.23 kg /ha.) in first harvesting and (23.1 kg /ha) in 2nd harvesting was recorded in treatment. The T1 treatment contains Vermicompost @5t ha and sulphur 40 kg/ ha followed by T2, T3, (100% FYM 10 t/ ha + Karanj cake + sulphur kg/ ha), T4,T5,T6 (50% each Vermicompost + FYM + Karanj cake + Sulphur kg/ ha), T7 (RDF +sulphur), T8 (sulphur) as a sole crop, and T9 (RDF+ Sulphur) T10 sole crop found lowest herbage yield and oil yield in treatment T10 recorded. i.e. without tree there may be no fertilizer and manure are applied. The result of the present experiment indicated that the Vermicompost @ 5 ton/ha under multitier agroforestry system gave maximum herbage, oil yield and good economic returns to the farmers fallowed by FYM @ 10 tone.
