A field experiment was conducted at Horticultural Research Centre, Chauras Campus, Department of Horticulture, H.N.B Garhwal University, Srinagar Garhwal, Uttarakhand, during Rabi season of 2016-17 to study the growth, yield and quality traits of knol-khol cv. White Vienna
influenced by various organic, inorganic, bio-fertilizer and their combinations. The experiment was carried out in randomized block design with three replications. The application of 100% RDF + Azosprillum
resulted the maximum and significant effects on different horticultural traits viz.
, days taken to first knob initiation, days taken to first knob harvest, length of knob, average weight of the knob and yield per plot as compared to control. Similarly 100% RDF + Azotobacter
gives the highest plant height at harvest and diameter of knob over control. In the quality parameters the 100% RDF + Neem cake showed the maximum total soluble solid over the other treatments, while the maximum vitamin-C was recorded in the treatment Azospirilium
control. The results showed that the combined use of organic, inorganic manures and bio-fertilizer significantly effective on growth, yield and quality characters in knol-khol production.
