A field experiment was conducted during 2016-17 in order to study the “Effects of different organic manures and comparing the organics with inorganic fertilizer on growth and yield parameters of banana cv. Amritsagar (AAA). The treatments were T1: FYM (Farm Yard Manure) + Microbial Consortia, T2: Enriched Compost, T3: Vermicompost, T4: Microbial Consortia, T0: RDF (Manure + NPK). The treatments T1, T2, T3 and T4 were laid out in certified organic block in RBD with 5 replications while the treatment T0 was laid out outside the organic block with five replications.
Among the organics, T1 recorded the highest pseudostem height (63.22 cm and 161.57 cm) and girth (21.62 cm and 39.80 cm) in both vegetative stage and shooting stage respectively. T1 produced the highest number of functional leaves at shooting (12.46) and at harvest (5.37). Highest bunch weight of 6.60 kg/plant and yield of 14.96 t/ha were recorded in T1 while lowest bunch weight of 3.95 kg/plant and yield of 8.95 t/ha were recorded in T4. Comparing the growth characters and yield parameters of the plants under organic treatments with that of RDF treated plants, it was found that plants treated with RDF performed better that the plants treated with organics. Considering the higher vegetative growth, bunch weight the treatment (T1) i.e. FYM @ 12 kg/plant and microbial consortia @ 30 g/plant applied at planting followed by application of FYM @ 6 kg/plant and microbial consortia 15 g/plant might be recommended for organic cultivation of banana.
Keywords: Organics, FYM (Farm Yard Manure), Microbial Consortia, Enriched Compost, Vermicompost, RDF (Recommended Dose of Fertilizer).
