A field experiment was conducted in Dharwad district, Karnataka during kharif season of 2015-2016, with an objective to assess the effectiveness of nutrient management practices and organic amendments on yield and economics of chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) hybrid Sitara. The results revealed that the maximum yield parameters were recorded due to adoption of INM practices (among nutrient management practices) and Panchagavya (among organic amendments). INM practices and Panchagavya recorded high Benefit: cost ratio of 2.7 and 2.6 respectively.


Benefit: cost ratio Chilli INM Panchagavya.
