Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to study the nutrient enhancement of major and minor nutrients in Glory lilly rind at Department of Nematology, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, during 2016. The results revealed that major nutrients like N, P, K and minor nutrients viz., calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and manganese in the rind of Gloriosa superba was increased substantially when the rind incorporated with farm yard manure. Further, significant increase has been noticed in their nutrient content if the rind is decomposed with Farm Yard Manure. (Major nutrients viz., N-0.50%, P-0.14% and K-0.98% and minor nutrients viz., Ca-0.09%, Mg-0.03%, Fe-2680µg/g, Cu-21.3 µg g-1, Zn- 35.6µg g-1, Mn- 459.7 µg g-1) Fortification of G. superba rind with Farm Yard Manure resulted in enhanced quantities of major nutrients viz., N- 0.67%, P-0.19% and K- 1.22% and minor nutrients viz., Ca- 0.11%, Mg- 0.05%, Fe- 3854µg g-1, Cu- 49.7 µg g-1, Zn- 50.51µg g-1, Mn- 520.10 µg g-1and can be applied as soil amendments for the control of plant parasitic nematodes. Significant increase in nutrient content of rind by decomposition with farm yard manure enhanced the value addition of G. superba.
