Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during karif season 2016-17 at Chitrakoot, Satna (M.P.) to assess the response of different organic source. Treatments used in the experiment are given in the FYM (25%,50%,75%,,100% @t/ha), Vermicompost (25%,50%,75%,,100% @t/ha), and Goat Manure (25%,50%,75%,,100% @t/ha), levels on growth and yield, economics of oted treatment, productivity and soil helth by Onion (Allium cepa L.)). Each successive increase in treatment up to 100% Vermicompost and 100% FYM, harvest fresh weight of bulb(kg/plot), and total bulb yield, but in most of the cases increase was Significantly maximum 125q/ha yield and maximum 164.73q/ha yield of bulb was exhibited in the treatment of FYM manure(T4) and Vermicompost (T8) respectively significant increase but minimum yield production of 121 q/ha (T12) Treatment T8 (100% Vermicompost), was recorded the maximum 164.73 q/ha total bulb yield followed by T4 (100% FYM) (125.24), T13 (100% Goat manure) (121.08), T7 (75% Vermicompost) and which were at par with each other. However, lowest 86.84 q/ha total bulb yield was noted in T0 (Absolute control). Data revealed that significantly maximum bulb yield of 164.73q/ha was obtained in treatment T8 (100% Vermicompost). The highest net return of 106730 Rs. /ha was obtained in treatment T4 (75 % FYM), followed by T7 (75 % Vermicompost), (69240 Rs/ha) but maximum benefit cost ratio 2.84 was observed under the treatment T8 due to cost of cultivation 58000 rs/ha. While, lowest bulb yield 86.84 q/ha and net return of 40840 Rs/ha along with cost benefit ratio 1.88 was observed in treatment T0 (Absolute control).
