Abstract:

The experiment entitled “Effect of Organic Manure and Inorganic Fertilizer on Growth, Yield and Quality of Garlic (Allium sativum L.)” was conducted during Rabi season of the year 2021-2022 on Instructional farm of Department of Horticulture, AKS University, Satna (M.P.). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design comprising of 12 treatments viz., T1- Control, T2 - 100% RDF(NPK), T3 - 100% Vermicompost, T4 - 100% FYM, T5 - 100% Poultry manure, T6 - 75%RDF + Poultry manure (10 q/ha), T7 - 50%RDF + Poultry manure (20 q/ha), T8 - 75% RDF + FYM (60 q/ha), T9 - 50%RDF + FYM (120 q/ha), T10 - 75% RDF + Vermicompost (40 q/ha), T11 - 50% RDF + Vermicompost (80 /ha), T12 - 50%Poultry manure (13q/ha ) + FYM (80q/ha) + Vermicompost (53 q/ha), each replicated three times. Treatments were randomly arranged in each replication, divided into twelve plots. The results reveal that the application of 50 % Poultry manure + 50 % FYM + 50 % Vermicompost (T12) gave maximum plant height, highest number of leaves per plant, leaf area per plant, leaf length, leaf width, diameter of bulb, weight of the bulb, number of cloves per bulb, weight of the clove, yield per plot and bulb yield, Specific gravity of bulb, Dry matter content of leaf, Dry matter content of bulb and T.S.S. (OBrix) of garlic.
