Abstract


A field experiment was conducted during kharif season to evaluate the efficacy of FYM and inorganic nitrogen levels on growth, dry matter accumulation, yield and nutrient uptake of Brahmi crop. Crop was treated with N:P:K (100:50:50 kg/ha), FYM (5, 10, 15 and 20 t/ha), N+ FYM (75 kg + 5 t/ha, 50 kg + 10 t/ha and 25 kg + 15 t/ha) and control. The study revealed that growth characters viz., upright shoot length, number of shoots and number of leaves, dry matter accumulation, yield and nutrient uptake increased with increasing the fertility levels. Maximum dry biomass yield 7.8 t/ha was recorded with an integrated package of N @ 75 kg + FYM @ 5 t/ha treatment which was at par with N:P:K @ 100:50:50 kg/ha and FYM @ 20 t/ha. Highest value of dry matter accumulation (808.5 g/m2) and nitrogen uptake (106.3 kg/ha) was also recorded due to N @ 75 kg + FYM @ 5 t/ha treatment however phosphorus and potassium uptake by plant was maximum with N:P:K @ 100:50:50 kg/ha.
