An investigation was carried out to study the effect of different organic manures and inorganic fertilizers on plant growth, yield and flower bud quality of Broccoli cv. Green magic under open conditions on Experimental field, department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Science, Allahabad, during Rabi season of 2015. The treatment consisted of different combinations of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers which were tested in RBD with three replications and 10 treatments with following combination of which was different organic manures like FYM, Poultry manure and vermicompost T0 Control, T1 (RDF), T2 (25% RDF + 75% FYM), T3 (50% RDF + 50% FYM), T4 (25% RDF + 75% VC), T5 (50% RDF + 50% PM), T6 (25% RDF + 75% PM), T7 (50% RDF + 50% PM), T8 (25% RDF + 75% SM), T9 (50% RDF + 50% SM), T10 (25% RDF +25% FYM + 25 %VC + 25% PM) were used in the investigation. The treatment T5 (50% RDF + 50% VC) recorded maximum plant height (51.11 cm), maximum number of leaves per plant (27.87), diameter of curd (19.91 cm), maximum weight of trimmed curd (465.33g), maximum curd yield per plot (3.72 kg), curd yield per hectare (20.68 t/hac) and maximum T.S.S (0Brix). The treatment T6 (25% RDF + 75% PM) recorded maximum plant spread (57.77 cm), maximum weight of plant without root (1630.42g) found in T3 (50% RDF + 50% FYM) and the maximum vitamin C mg/100gm (103.97) found in T4 (25% RDF + 75% VC).
Key words: Broccoli, FYM, VC, PM, Yield, Plant growth, Flower bud quality.
