Abstract

Applying organic manures is crucial for optimal radish growth and yield due to their rich nutrient content, soil-enriching properties and ability to foster beneficial microbial activity, all of which contribute to healthier plants and improved harvests. A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the influence of different liquid organic manures on growth and yield of radish (Raphanus sativus) at organic farming block of Zonal Agricultural Research Station, V. C. Farm, Mandya during late Kharif 2020. The experiment was laid in Randomized Complete Block Design with nine treatments and three replications. The experiment consisted of nine treatments of three different levels of nitrogen was applied through FYM and different times of application of Panchagavya and Jeevamrutha. A significant variation was observed among the treatments. The 75% RDN through FYM + two time application of Panchagavya significantly increased the growth and yield attributes at 15, 30, 45 DAS and at harvest viz., plant height (8.39,  18.25, 28.16 and 33.06 cm), number of leaves per plant (6.22, 9.11, 16.04 and 18.43), leaf area index (0.08, 0.46, 0.70 and 1.01), root diameter (5.43cm at harvest), fresh shoot weight (8.53, 51.31, 115.29 and 132.43 g plant-1), fresh root weight (2.99, 61.19, 161.08 and 213.08 g plant-1), dry shoot weight (1.11, 10.76, 22.01 and 30.49 g plant-1), dry root weight (0.90, 13.13, 26.74 and 43.28 g plant-1),  root yield (38.38 t ha-1)  and shoot yield (30.26 t ha-1). In total, the results suggested that 75 per cent recommended dosage of nitrogen was applied through FYM with two times application of panchagavya is proved to be conducive for radish cultivation.
