Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted during kharif, 2019-20 at Research Farm, Nagarjun Medicinal Plants Garden, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola, Maharashtra. The site of experiment having history of 10 years safed musli cultivation along with application of various organic sources i.e., FYM, vermicompost, biogass slurry no chemical fertilizers were applied last 10 years only organic site of this experiment. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with nine treatments replicated in three replications. The results indicated that the soil application of NPS compost @ 4.5 t ha-1 + 2 spray of 0.5 % humic acid at 60 and 90 days of planting (DAP) was recorded significantly highest yield attributing characters which was found at par with application NPS compost @ 3.0 t ha-1 + 2 spray of 0.5 % humic acid. Similarly, the soil application of NPS compost @ 4.5 t ha-1 + 2 spray of 0.5 % humic acid was recorded significantly highest fresh root and dry root yield of safed musali which was found at par with application of NPS compost @ 3.0 t ha-1 + 2 spray of 0.5 % humic acid. The application of NPS compost @ 4.5 t ha-1 + 2 spray of 0.5 % humic acid was recorded significantly highest nutrient uptake i.e N, P, K, S, Zn, Fe, Mn and Cu by safed musli which was found at par with application of NPS compost @ 3.0 t ha-1 + 2 spray of 0.5 % humic acid and found superior over rest of the treatments and absolute control.
