Abstract: A field experiment on effect of factory effluent and inorganic fertilizers on growth, yield and nutrient uptake by spinach beet (Beta vulgaris var. bengalensis) in lateritic soil of Konkan was conducted with Randomized Block Design comprising nine treatments replicated thrice at Central Experiment Station, Dr. B. S. Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri during Rabi 2013-14. The effect of application of effluent before sowing and after first harvest (cutting) with and without NPK fertilizers @ 100, 50 and 25 per cent of recommended dose on growth, yield and ascorbic acid content by plant was studied. From study it was found that the application of effluent before sowing with inorganic fertilizers or application of effluent before sowing and after first cutting with inorganic fertilizers significantly increased the growth parameters viz., plant height, number of leaves plant-1, yield and ascorbic acid content in plant.
