Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Instructional Farm, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh, Gujarat, during the year 2018 and 2019 on medium black calcareous clayey soil to study the effect of some cow based bio-enhancers and botanicals on growth and yield of soybean. The variety which was taken in the experiment was GJS-3. The experiment was designed in randomized  block design having treatments Control (T1), 100% RDF (T2) (outside the organic plot), FYM @ 10 t/ha (T3), FYM @ 5 t/ha + Panchgavya @ 3% as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS (T4), FYM @ 5 t/ha + Banana Pseudostem sap @ 1% as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS (T5), FYM @ 5 t/ha + Seaweed extract @ 3.5% as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS (T6), FYM @ 5 t/ha + Cow urine @ 3% as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS (T7), Vermicompost @ 4 t/ha (T8), Vermicompost @ 2 t/ha + Panchgavya @ 3% as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS (T9), Vermicompost @ 2 t/ha + Banana Pseudostem sap @ 1% as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS (T10), Vermicompost @ 2 t/ha + Seaweed extract @ 3.5% as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS (T11) and Vermicompost @ 2 t/ha + Cow urine @ 3% as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS (T12) produced comparable results regarding growth (plant height, number of leaves and number of  nodules per plant) and yield of soybean. Experiment result reported that during organic cultivation of soybean, application of Vermicompost @ 4 t/ha performed better results which was significantly at par with treatments FYM @ 10 t/ha, Vermicompost 2 t/ha + Panchgavya @ 3 % as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS and FYM @ 5 t/ha + Panchgavya @ 3% as foliar spray at 30 and 60 DAS.
