Abstract

Influence of various organic manures with chemical fertilizers on increasing growth, yield and nutritional quality of potato was studied. The experiment consisted of seven treatments including T0: Control, T1: 75% recommended fertilizer dose (RFD); T2: 100% RFD, T3: 75% RFD + Kazi compost (5 t/ha), T4: 75% RFD + Kazi compost (3 t/ha), T5: 75% RFD + Poultry manure (3 t/ha) and T6: 75% RFD + Cowdung (5 t/ha). Among the organic manures, Kazi compost performed the best which compensated up to 25% of recommended inorganic fertilizers and significantly improved the growth components, yield parameters, tuber yield and nutrient uptake by potato. In field performance, Kazi compost @ 5 t/ha was effective followed by poultry manure and can be recommended for better growth, yield and nutritional quality of potato.
