An experiment entitled that Effect of organic and inorganic fertilizers on growth and development of young tea plants (Camellia sinensis (L.) o. kuntze) inter-planted in arecanut garden, it was conducted at Instructional plots of the Department of Plantation Crops and Processing, UBKV, Pundibari, West Bengal during March, 2016 to May, 2017.The performance of growth parameters with application of manures and fertilizers among the treatments. The experiment was conducted with five treatments (T1: Control), (T2: FYM @2.0kg+1/2RDF),(T3:Vermicompost@1.0kg+1/2RDF),(T4:FYM@2.0kg+RDF)and(T5:Vermicompost@1.0kg+RDF) with four replications and laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD), growth parameters were recorded from 30 to 360 days after planting. Experimental results varied significantly with application of manures and fertilizers inter planted in arecanut garden among the treatments from 60 to 360 days after planting. The treatment T5: VC+RDF has given best results regarding the growth parameters like minimum number of days taken to reach pluckable height of 55 cm, maximum number of leaves (75.5/ plant), number of branches (15.55/plant), plant girth (29.43 mm) at collar region, leaf area (37.60 cm2) and plant spreading (1475.26 cm2) followed by T4: FYM+RDF and T3: VC+1/2 RDF whereas the minimum results was recorded by T1: control.
Key words: Areca nut, FYM, Tea and Vermicompost.
