Abstract:
An investigation on “integrated nutrient management in kalmegh (<em>Andrographis paniculata </em>Nees.)” was carried out at Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi (Karnataka) under Ghataprabha Left Bank Command area during the year 2015­16 at Department of Plantation, Spices, Medicinal and Aromatic Crops. The result revealed that maximum plant height (61.13 cm) and plant spread (44.89 and 43.66 cm East-West and North-South, respectively), higher fresh herb yield per hectare (10.39 t) and andrographolide yield (2.25 q) was recorded with the application of 100:75:50 kg NPK per ha + <em>Azatobacter </em>(1 q) enriched in FYM (5 t ha<sup>-1</sup>) + vermicompost 1 t per ha at harvest. There was no significant variation in andrographolide content in plants.
