Author(s): Lalhming sanga, AK Jha, BC Deka and D Thakuria
Abstract: Nutrient management is one of the major challenges in organic farming practices. This study assessed how different forms of nutrient management can influence yield and quality of broccoli as a part of M.Sc., research programme. Application of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers either alone or in combination increased yield and contents of the phytochemicals of broccoli significantly compared to that in no-input plot. Application of vermicompost with FYM and bioinoculants along with 100%K increased broccoli head yield which was at par with that in 100% NPK alone and increased the contents of phytochemicals significantly compared to that in all other nutrient management practices. Findings of this study clearly revealed higher content of phytochemicals in broccoli head was achieved under organic manure with bioinoculants application and this nutrient management practice may be recommended for organically grown broccoli in acidic soils on hill terrace.
