Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on medium black clayey soil at organic plot, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Junagadh Agricultural University, Amreli (Gujarat) during rabi season year of 2018-19 and 2019-20 to evaluate some organic manures and cow-based bio-enhancers for organic cultivation of drip irrigated onion (var. GJRO-11). Ten treatments comprising Panchagavya as foliar spray @ 3% at 30, 45 and 60 DAT + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, Jivamrut as drenching @ 5% at 15, 30 and 45 DAT + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, Cow urine as foliar spray @ 3% at 15, 30 and 45 DAT + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, Seaweed extract as foliar spray @ 3.5% at 30, 45 and 60 DAT + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, Banana sap as foliar spray @ 1% at 30, 45 and 60 DAT + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, Vermiwash as foliar spray @ 2% at 45 and 60 DAT + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, Enrich vermi compost @ 2 t ha-1 + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, Vermi compost @ 2 t ha-1 + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, FYM @ 20 t ha-1 and Control (Absolute) in randomized block design with three replications. The experiment results basis on two year pooled mean revealed that application of FYM 20 t ha-1 followed by Panchagavya as foliar spray @ 3% at 30, 45 and 60 DAT + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, Jivamrut as drenching @ 5% at 15, 30 and 45 DAT + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, enrich vermi compost @ 2 t ha-1 + FYM @ 5 t ha-1, vermi compost @ 2 t ha-1 + FYM @ 5 t ha-1 were found superior in respect of the plant height (cm), number of leaves plant-1, leaf length (cm), neck thickness (mm), no. of scale per bulb, polar diameter (mm), equatorial diameter (mm), bulb weight (g) and bulb yield (t ha-1).
