Abstract:

The present study entitled “Effect of Different soil media, on seed germination, vegetative growth and survival percentage on transplanting of Annual drumstick (Moringa oleifera) cv. PKM-2” was undertaken in the Horticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Science, Prayagraj, 211007 during the rabi season of 2019- 2020. The Experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with 10 treatments and 3 replications. Results concluded that the application of media’s T1 (Vermicompost+sand) (3:1) responded with superior results in various parameters i.e. in germination percent (91.67%), minimum days taken to emergence (4.55days), stem diameter (1.04cm), plant height (45.66cm), shoot fresh weight (22.50gm), shoot dry weight (5.47gm), root fresh weight (18.50gm), root dry weight (4.60g), total fresh weight (40.67gm), total dry weight (10.23gm), shown maximum survivability percent (75 percent), leaf vitamin-c percent (0.17gm/100gm) while soil media T4 ( Poultry manure + sand) (3:1) has highest leaf calcium percent (0.41gm/100gm), T5 (Poultry manure + sand) (2:1)(0.17gm/100gm) has highest leaf iron percent.
