Kalmegh (Andrographis paniculata) belongs to the family Acanthaceae a high value medicinal crop known for its prime active constituent Andrographolide. Kalmegh is mainly used for treating fever, liver diseases, diabetes, snake bite, common cold, bronchitis and a variety of ailments. The experiment was laid out in a Factorial Randomized Complete Block Design (FRCBD) with 9 treatments replicated thrice having three levels of nitrogen and potassium respectively. The results revealed that, application of FYM @ 25 t ha-1 along with 75 per cent nitrogen and 100 per cent potassium has recorded highest accumulation of nutrients in plant parts and increased efficiency of supplied nutrients in first and second ratoon crops of kalmegh.

Key words: Andrographis paniculata, FRCBD, Efficiency
