Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during 1993 involving graded levels of nitrogen, FYM, lime,. neem coated urea (slow release fertiliser) and biofertiliser on carrot crop. The study revealed that nitrogen applied @ 240 kg ha −1 showed significantly highest N content in foliage (2.44%), root (1.52%) and nitrogen removal by foliage and root of carrot. A combination of FYM, lime, bio-fertiliser with 120 kg N ha −1 was found to be effective as compared to those applied individually.
