Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to the study of “Integration effect of NPK with Vermicompost and Boron on Yield and Economics of Brinjal (Solanum melongena L.)” during Kharif season 2017 at Horticulture Farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Jaipur). The experiment consisted of 18 treatments viz., INM levels (control, 100% NPK, 75% NPK + 25% vermicompost, 50% NPK + 50% vermicompost, 25% NPK + 75% vermicompost and 100% vermicompost) and boron levels (control, 100 ppm and 200 ppm). The total 18 treatment combinations were tested in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications. The application of 50% NPK + 50% vermicompost increased fruit girth (14.75cm), number of fruit plant-1 (11.06), fruit yield plant-1 (0.91kg), as compared to control but statistically at par with 25% NPK + 75% vermicompost. The application of boron (200 ppm) significantly increased fruit girth (14.33 cm), number of fruit plant-1 (10.99), fruit yield plant-1 (0.89kg), as compared to control and boron (100 ppm). The application of 50% NPK + 50% vermicompost or boron (200 ppm) gave maximum net return of 246634 Rs. ha-1 and 246660 Rs. ha-1 respectively but significantly higher B: C ratio observed under treatment N1(100% NPK) or boron (200 ppm) 3.16 and 3.07 respectively.
