Abstract:
Organic cultivation not only helps in enhancing availability of nutrients to plant, but also reduces dependency upon external inputs as it is near to nature. Therefore, the study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of vermicompost and different bio-fertilizers on growth and productivity of fenugreek. A field experiment was conducted at College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar during Rabi season 2018-2019 which consisted of 15 treatments in combinations of different organic fertilizers, viz. vermicompost, Rhizobium, Azospirrilium and PSB. The results revealed that among the different combinations of vermicompost and biofertilizers, application of Vermicompost + Rhizobium + Azospirrilium + PSB (T15) significantly increased plant height (22.66 cm) at 45 DAS and (89.54 cm) at 90 DAS, number of leaves per plant at 45 DAS and 90 DAS (21 and 89.17, respectively), number of branches per plant (8.03) and yield parameters i.e. seed yield per plant (9.80 gm), seed yield per plot (0.98 kg.) and estimated yield (32.67 q/ha) as compared to control. Thus, it can be inferred that application of vermicompost with biofertlizers is better for realizing maximum growth and yield levels than use in single form.
