Abstract:
At the Horticulture Research Farm, (CRC-1) Department of Horticulture, School of Agriculture, ITM University, Gwalior (M.P.), the current study, named Evaluation the Effects of Organic Manures and Bio fertilizers on Growth and Yield of Carrot (Daucus carota L.), was carried out. Vegetables are understood to be a crucial ally in the upkeep of good health and in ensuring nutritional security. Important vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, proteins, and roughages are all provided by them in significant amounts. The carrot's expanded fleshy taproot, which is made up of a phloem- and xylem-rich cortex, is its edible portion. Carrots of high grade have the most cortex and the least core. When applied with chemical fertilizers, biofertilizers increase crop production and optimize nutrient usage. Because chemical fertilizer is more expensive and it is getting harder to satisfy the nutrient needs of farming, the idea of an integrated plant nutrient supply system is gaining popularity. The physio-chemical characteristics of soil (aggregation, stability, pH, EC, bulk density, water holding capacity, organic matter) are improved by the use of vermicompost. The main waste products from the poultry business are by far chicken manure and litter, which are frequently employed as sources of nutrients for crop development. The overall N and P contents of poultry wastes are among the highest of all wastes. Three replications were used in the experiment, which was set up using a randomized block design. In the carrot (Daucus carota L.) cultivar Super Red, 10 treatments totalling FYM, Vermicompost, Azotobactor, and PSB with varying RDF doses were utilized in each replication. The findings showed that the growth and yield characteristics of carrots at various growth stages were strongly impacted by the various organic manures and biofertilizers. It was noted that the greatest treatment for boosting carrot growth and yield was determined to be T9 (Vermi + Azo + Psb 100% greater).
