ABSTRACT

The experiment was conducted at Horticulture Research and Extension Station, Devihosur, Haveri, Karnataka to study the effect of different levels of fertilizers with jeevamruta applications at different growth stages of Byadagi Chilli (Dabbi). The pooled results of the experiment revealed that among fertilizer levels (main plots) 100 % RDF has given the significantly highest dry Chilli yield (829 kg ha-1) compared to other levels of fertilizer doses application. The response of dry chilli yield for jeevamruta application at different stages (sub plots) showed the significant effect. The jeevamruta application @ 550 l ha-1at the time of transplanting + flowering + fruit initiation stages has recorded significantly highest dry chilli yield (619 kg ha-1) compare to jeevamruta application at transplanting stage and transplanting + fruit initiation stage. The similar trend was noticed with respect to number of fruits and fruit yield per plant. The interaction effect for different levels of fertilizers and jeevamruta application was also differed significantly i.e the 100 % RDF with jeevamruta application @ 550 l ha-1at transplanting + flowering + fruit initiation stages has recorded significantly highest dry chilli yield (910 kg ha-1) compare to other interaction effects. The similar trend was also noticed with respect to number of fruits and fruit yield per plant.
