Abstract

A field experiment carried out during kharif 1998–99. Nine treatment combinations comprising of no manure, 10 t FYM and 5 t vermicompost per ha and three plant populations viz., 3.33, 2.22 and 1.66 lakh per ha were tried in FRBD with three replications. The number of tubers, fresh and dry tuber yield and also steroid content were significantly increased due to organic manures. However no significant differences in yield were noticed due to FYM and vermicompost. The steroid content was significantly highest with the application of vermicompost. The fresh and dry tuber yield was highest in dense population (3.33 lakh) of safed musli.
