Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted at Fruit Research Station, Lal baugh. College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during summer 2018 to find out the effect of inorganic and organic along with biofertilizers in an integrated manner for yield maximization and quality improvement in hybrid bitter gourd VNR 22. The experiment consisted of ten treatment with three replication, including different level of applications of inorganic fertilizers (Urea, DAP and Muriate of potash), organic manure (FYM) and biofertilizers (Azotobacter and PSB). The results illustrated that the plants treated with 100% RDF of NPK + FYM 5 t/ha + Biofertilizers 4 kg/ha (Azotobacter and Phosphate Solubilizing bacteria) has recorded maximum total soluble solids (3.19ºBrix), protein content (1.75 %), ascorbic acid (81.35 mg/100g) and shelf life (5.71 days) as well as maximum total fruit yield (5.65 t/ha) and higher benefit: cost ratio (2.99).
