Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at certified organic farm, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during rabi season of 2016-2017 to study the effect of organics on growth, yield, quality and economics of fenugreek. Among the solid organics, application of NADEP compost @ 5 t ha-1 recorded significantly higher plant height, number of branches plant-1, green biomass, number of pods plant-1, number of seeds pod-1, test weight, protein content in seeds, seed and straw yield and was found statistically at par with application of vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1. In liquid organics, significantly higher plant height, number of branches plant-1, green biomass, number of pods plant-1, number of seeds pod-1, test weight, seed yield, straw yield and protein content in seeds were obtained with the soil application of enriched banana pseudostem sap @ 5 L ha-1 and statistically remained at par with treatment receiving panchagvya @ 20 L ha-1. In case of interaction, the combined application of NADEP compost @ 5 t ha-1 and enriched banana pseudostem sap @ 5 L ha-1 recorded significantly higher fenugreek seed and straw yield. From the economic point of view, combined application of NADAP compost @ 5 t ha-1 and enriched banana pseudostem sap @ 5 L ha-1 resulted the maximum net profit of Rs. 72746 ha-1 with BCR of 2.28 followed by treatment combination of vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1 and enriched banana pseudostem sap @ 5 L ha-1 with net profit of Rs.70597 ha-1 and BCR of 2.27.
