Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of integrated nutrient management on nutrient availability in soil and their uptake by ridge gourd [Luffa acutangula L. (Roxb.) during summer (zaid), 2017 and 2018. Treatment of experiment includes three levels of NPK (75,100 and 125 % RDF), two organic manures (FYM @ 20 t/ha and vermicompost @ 8.3 t/ha) and four biofertiilizers (No inoculation, inoculation with Azotobactor, PSB and Azotobactor + PSB). The results illustrated that application of 125 % NPK being at par to 100 %, Vermicompost and Bio-fertilizers (Azotobactor +PSB) have recorded maximum nutrient concentration in plant and their availability in soil and uptake of by plant. Hence, the treatment 100% NPK, VC and BF (Azotobactor + PSB) are considered as a best treatment for ridge gourd crop.
