A field study was conducted at Horticulture Research Farm, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, during 2013-14 and 2014-15 to find out the nutrient status of cape gooseberry (Physalis peruviana L.) plant influenced by adoption of integrated nutrient management. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with fifteen treatments replicated thrice. The results clearly indicated that the integrated use of nutrients had significantly effect on the chlorophyll and nutrients status of the leaf. The maximum chlorophyll concentration was recorded to be maximum (21.57 SPAD reading) in 50% NPK + FYM + PSB application. The highest (4.89%) nitrogen content was found with100% NPK + FYM + AZB + PSB while it was lowest (1.68%) in50% NPK. Phosphorus content was found to be maximum (1.33%) in 100% NPK + FYM + AZB + PSB. The minimum (0.51%) phosphorus content was discerned in 50% NPK. Potassium content was highest (3.62%) in 100% NPK + FYM + AZB + PSB while lowest (1.43%) potassium content was found in 50% NPK.

Keywords: Cape gooseberry, Chlorophyll, Nutrient, Integrated nutrient management.
