Abstract

An Investigation was undertaken on Radish var. Mino Early white long during the summer 1997 and 1998 in sandy loam soil with nine treatments comprising three sources of Bio-fertilizer i.e. (B 1-Farm Yard Manure + Dense organic manure; B 2-Biofertilizer + Dense organic manure; B 3-chemical fertilizers) and three sources of Bio-pesticides i.e. (P 1-Neemax, P 2-Garlic extract and P 3-Chemical pesticide, Endosulfan) with three replications. The treatments having farm yard manure + dense organic manure gave higher yield, higher protein with prolonged shelf-life under ambient storage conditions, than that of other included treatments. However, nitrate content which caused health hazards was low in treatment heving bio-fertilizer + dense organic manure and similar treatment was also rich in vitamin C content. Neemax, a bio-pesticide controlled the leaf beetle effectively as compared to endosulfan a chemical pesticide.
