Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on “Effect of Different Level of Inorganic Fertilizer, FYM, and Neem Cake on Soil Properties and Yield attributes by Carrot (Daucus carota L.)” during Rabi season 2019-20 at the Research farm Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Naini Agriculture Institute, SHUATS, Prayagraj. The design applied was 3x3 randomized block design having three factors with three levels of N P K @ 0, 50, and 100 % ha-1, two levels of FYM @ 50 and 100 % ha-1and two levels of neem cake @ 50 and 100 % ha-1respectively. The result obtained with treatment T9 -100%(NPK)+5t ha-1 FYM+5t ha-1 NC that showed the best resulted in a slight increase in soil pH 6.76, Electrical conductivity 0.19dS m-1. In post-harvest soil of N P K fertilizers observations were resulted in significant increase in Organic carbon 0.57 %, Particle density 2.50 Mg m-3, Bulk density 1.23 Mg m-3, Pore space 55.46 %, water holding capacity % 56.62 and available N 321.35 kg ha-1, P 29.45 kg ha-1, K 265.18 kg ha-1, significant increase in case of Nitrogen (kg ha-1), Phosphorus (kg ha-1), Potassium (kg ha-1) was found to be significant among other treatments in carrot cultivation and soil quality improvement. It was also revealed that the application of N P K with FYM and neem cake was excellent source for fertilization than fertilizers.
