Author(s): Praveen Jaiswal, Anamika Tomar, Dr. KP Asati and Dr. Swati Barche

Abstract: The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications and fourteen treatments. The treatments consisted of T0 Control, T1 100% RDF, T2 100% FYM, T3 100% Vermicompost, T4 100% Poultry manure, T5 100% Biofertilizer, T6 50% RDF + 50% FYM, T7 50% RDF + 50% Vermicompost, T8 50% RDF + 50% Poultry manure, T9 50% RDF + 50% Biofertilizer, T10 50% RDF + 25% FYM + 25% Vermicompost, T11 50% RDF + 25% FYM + 25% Poultry manure, T12 50% RDF + 50% FYM + Biofertilizer, T13 50% RDF + 16.6% FYM + 16.6% Vermicompost + 16.6% Poultry manure + Biofertilizer. Application of different levels of fertilizers in combination, bio-fertilizers, vermicompost and different compost significantly increased the growth, yield and quality of broccoli. Treatment T7-50% RDF+50% Vermicompost was recorded best for growth parameters (i.e., plant height, leaf length, leaf width and number of leaves per plant) Phenological Parameters i.e., (days to first curd emergence and days taken to 50% curd formation) It is cleared from the data procured that a statistically significantly maximum in the treatment T7-50% RDF + 50% Vermicompost (16.70 t/ha), net income (Rs.204800) and C:B ratio (5.35). These results suggested that the optimum production of broccoli can be obtained with integrated application of 50% RDF + 50% Vermicompost.
