Abstract:
This paper describes the effect of PGPR, folk liquid manures (Panchagavya, Jeevamrut, Amritpani), bulky and concentrated organic manures (Vermicompost and Poultry manure) under Capsicum in mid hills of Western Himalayas during kharif season of year 2016 at research farm, Department of Soil Science and Water Management, Dr YSPUHF, Nauni, Solan, India. There were 7 treatments of the research trial and the treatment T2 (90% Recommended dose of nutrients with PGPR and liquid manures- Panchagavya, Jeevamrut, Amritpani) recorded maximum plant height (58.3 cm), plant biomass (65.87 g plant-1), fruit yield (26.96 t ha-1 and 0.910 kg plant-1), total NPK uptake (13.76, 1.79 and 13.34 kg ha-1). Among soil properties maximum value of organic carbon (1.30%), macronutrient (NPK) content (441.73, 76.71 and 290.10 kg ha-1), DTPA extractable cations (3.12, 2.89, 7.50 and 2.76 ppm) were obtained in treatment T2. An experimental evaluation of different treatments leads to conclusion that treatment with 90% RDN, PGPR and liquid manures was best among all treatments and it had significant effects on plant as well as soil properties.
