Effect of commercial bio-stimulating organic formulation on cabbage (Brassica oleracea L. var. capitata)
Abstract: Cabbage is an essential crop widely distributed and cultivated all around the year in temperate, subtropical as well as tropical regions. The experiment was carried out to analyze the effect of bio-stimulating organic formulation on vegetative parameters and yield attributes of cabbage in Horticulture Farm, Sriniketan from November 2020 to March 2021. Seven treatments were tested in Randomized Block Design with three replications on cabbage cv. Rare Ball (F1 hybrid). The analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed that there exists significant variation among different treatments. Maximum stem length was recorded with RDF(NPK @ 60- 30-30 Kg ha-1) + manures @ (5 t ha-1) + 1 foliar spray with Krish-Tee @ (2 ml l-1). Maximum leaf length was registered in RDF(NPK @ 60- 30-30 Kg ha-1) + KR Organic Manure (375 Kg ha-1), which was noted statistically at par with T6 [RDF (NPK @ 60- 30-30 Kg ha-1) + KR Organic Manure (375 Kg ha-1) + 2 foliar sprays with KT (2 ml L-1)] Application of RDF (NPK @ 60- 30-30 Kg ha-1) + manures (5 t ha-1) + seed soaking with Krish-Tee + 2 foliar sprays with Krish-Tee (2 ml l-1) encouraged head polar periphery and head equatorial periphery, plant weight and head weight and thus can be suggested to local cabbage growers of Red and Laterite Zone of West Bengal.
