|Abstract:||An investigation to study the “Integrated nutrient management of taro (Colocasia esculenta var. antiquorum)” was carried out at Horticultural Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.), during the year 2007-08 in kharif season. The experiment was performed under Randomized block design with three replication and nine treatment including control. The aim of the experiment was to find out most effective nutrient for higher growth, yield and quality along with economics of Colocasia. The result indicated that the application of 200 kg vermi compost along with 75% recommended dose of NPK significantly produced higher weight of corm, weight of side cormels, number of main cormels per plant, number of side cormels, number of tillers per plant, weight of total tuber yield per plant, per plot, per hectare, marketable tuber yield per hectare, maximum gross return, maximum net return and maximum benefit cost ratio. While, the treatment of FYM + neem cake produced higher plant height. The quality parameter like reducing and total sugar were recorded higher with the treatment T7 (PSB @ 5 kg/ha + Azospirillum @ 5 kg/ha) and non- reducing sugar with the treatment T9 (control) However, the treatment T2 (vermi compost @ 200 kg/ha + 50% RD of NPK) was most effective to produce higher content of ascorbic acid and dry matter content in cormels. Where as, maximum dry matter content of corm was recorded in T6 (RD of NPK @ 80:50:100 kg/ha).|
