Abstract:
The experiment was carried out in vegetable Research Farm, during November- 2011 to April-2012 with following combination of NPK which was T1 (control), T2 (100:60:60), T3 (100:60:120), T4 (100:120:60), T5 (100:120:120), T6 (150:60:60), T7 (150:60:120), T8 (150:120:60) and T9 (150:120:120) kg ha-1.
