Abstract

A field experiment was conducted in a sandy clay loam soil with bhendi as the test crop (cv. Arka Anamika) in Sivapuri village, Chidambaram Taluk, Cuddalore district, Tamil Nadu. to study the effect of pressmud compost on plant growth, yield attributes, yield and nutrient uptake by bhendi. The presumed compost was applied @ 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 15, 17.5 and 20 t ha-1 as a basal dose. All the experimental plots received a common fertilizer schedule of 100:60:50 kg NPK ha-1 (RDF). The results of the experiment clearly revealed that application of pressmud compost had a significant influence on growth, yield, and uptake of nutrients. Increasing levels of pressmud compost gradually increased the growth attributes. The significantly maximum value was recorded with the application of 15 tonnes of pressmud compost ha-1. Thereafter, there was no significant improvement. A similar trend was observed in the yield attributes and yield of bhendi. Regarding nitrogen, phosphorus and sulphur uptake by plant and fruit, significantly higher values were recorded with 15 tonnes pressmud compost. However, the subsequent increase in pressmud compost application failed to attain the level of statistical significance.
