Effect of integrated nutrient management on yield attributes and quality of summer sesamum
Author(s): KP Vani, G Divya and N Nalini
Abstract: A field study aimed to evolve efficient integrated nutrient management for improving yield and quality of summer sesamum was conducted on sandy loam soil during summer season of 2013. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design replicated thrice with nine treatments of organic and inorganic fertilizers. The relative performances of all the integrated nutrient management practices in terms of yield attributes, yield, oil content and oil yield were assessed. Application of 100% RDN gave the highest yield attributes and was at par with 100% RDN+1% foliar spray of Humic acid, 100 % RDN +1% foliar spray- Fulvic acid and followed by 75 % RDN + 25% N through Vermicompost. Significantly higher seed and oil yield was observed with 100% RDN which was at par with 100% RDN+1% foliar spray of Humic acid.
