Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at Horticultural Research Farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner during Kharif season 2017. The experiment was conducted in a randomized block design with sixteen treatments, replicated thrice. The treatments include different organic manures (control, FYM @ 20 t ha-1, vermicompost @ 6 t ha-1 and poultry manure @ 8 t ha-1) with biofertilizers (control, Azospirillum, PSB and Azospirillum+ PSB). The present investigation revealed that among organic manures application of vermicompost @ 6 t ha-1 recorded the highest branches plant-1 (6.14), leaf area index (0.49), chlorophyll content of leaf (1.79), no. of fruit plant-1 (22.79), fruit length (13.95 cm), average fruit weight (16.19 g)and fruit yield ha-1 (141.48 q ha-1). Among different biofertilizers combined use of Azospirillum+ PSB recorded significantly higher growth parameters, yield attributing characters and yields. Due to superior fruit yield responses, vermicompost and Azospirillum+ PSB combined application could be a very attractive fertilizer alternative particularly for annual crops with short growth cycle such as okra.
