Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to find out the suitable organic, inorganic nutrients and biofertilizers or their combinations for integrated nutrient management in tomato at the Horticulture Research Farm, College of Agriculture, Indore (M.P). The experiment comprised of total eight treatments combinations of organic and inorganic nutrients and control. The experiment was laid out in randomized completely block design with three replications.Application of RDF treatment T7 (RDF 180:100:60 NPK) recorded significantly growth and recorded the best performance over Plant height (144.07cm), number of fruit cluster per plant (10.23), days to first flowering (45.73), days to 50% flowering (43.53), while in number of flowers/plant (53.77), minimum days to flowering (41.67) and highest fruit yield/ha (359.95q), treatment T5 [(75% RDF% + 25% of RDF T4 [(i.e. Neem cake (6.25%) + Vermicompost (6.25%) + FYM (6.25%) + Poultry manure (6.25%) + PSB + Azospirillum.)] recorded best result. Similarly, treatment-1 (Neem cake (50%) + Vermicompost (50%) + PSB + Azospirillum) recorded maximum weight of fruit(89.20g), fruit length(6.13cm) and fruit diameter(18.20cm), while treatment-6 [(50% RDF% + 50% of RDF T4 [(i.e. Neem cake (12.5%) + Vermicompost (12.5%) + FYM (12.5%) + Poultry manure (12.5%) + PSB + Azospirillum)] was recorded significantly the maximum leaf area per plant (343.24 cm2).
