Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Farm, Department of Agronomy, B.A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat during rabi 2012 and 2013 to study the integrated nutrient management on rabi fennel Foeniculum Vulgare Mill.) in Middle Gujarat Condition. An experimental results revealed that application of 100 % RDN (Recommended Dose of Nitrogen) with Azospirillum + PSB + vermicompost @ 2 t ha-1 recorded significantly higher plant height at 60 DAS (41.80 cm), 90 DAS (109.20 cm), at harvest (148.00 cm), number of umbels plant-1 (20.57), number of umbellates umbel-1 (23.16), number of seeds umbel-1 (173.69), seed (2719 kg ha-1) and stover (3084 kg ha-1) yields as well as significantly the highest number of branches plant-1 (9.60) as compared to rest of the treatments. Hence, it can be concluded that the application of 100 % RDN with Azospirillum + PSB + vermicompost @ 2 t ha-1 would be useful to enhance the productivity of rabi fennel. The integrated use of fertilizers may be suggested for higher productivity along with overall betterment.
