Abstract

The experiment entitled “Effect of Integrated Nutrient Management on Growth, Yield and Quality of Carrot (Daucus carota L.) cv. New Kuroda” was conducted during Rabi season of the year 2020-2021 on Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology, Prayagraj. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design comprising of 13 treatments each replicated three times. Treatments were randomly arranged in each replication, divided into thirty nine plots.  The experiment was carried out with the thirteen integrated nutrient management treatments. Among the treatments, T11 FYM 10 t ha-1+Vermicompost 2.5t  ha-1 + Biofertilizer (2 kg ha-1) 75% NPK registered significantly higher plant height (82.95), number of leaves per plant (14.66), root length  (10.82), root diameter (3.42), fresh weight of root  (67.01),  dry weight of root (4.13),  root  yield plot-1(17.80kg),  root  yield (455.00q ha-1) and  Total soluble solid (9.45 0Brix). Whereas the maximum benefit cost ratio (1: 5.24 & 5.29) was found in  T10 and T12.
