Abstract

An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of vermicompost and seed tuber size on the yield of Potato. The experiment consisted of two factors, i.e., factor A: Vermicompost level (Vc-4): Vc1: 0 t/ha, Vc2: 3 t/ha, Vc3: 6 t/ha and Vc4: 9 t/ha; factor B: Tuber size (T-5): T1: 5 - 10 g, T2: 10 - 20 g, T3: 20 - 30 g, T4: 30 - 40 g and T5: >40 g. Vermicompost was found to have a significant effect on most of the yield contributing parameters. Results showed that yield parameters increased with increasing vermicompost level irrespective of tuber size. Among the 20 treatment combinations, vermicompost @ 9 t/ha with tuber size > 40 g produced the maximum yield (31.33 t/ha) that was 216.82% higher than Vc1T1.
