Abstract

A variety of vegetable crops viz., Brassica oleracea, Brassica parachinesis, Brassica Chinesis, Brassiea oleraeea (Botrytis), Cucumis melo, Cueumis sativus, Pisum sativum, Lycopersicon esculentum, Phaseolus vulgaris, Solanum tuberosum, Ipomoea batatas, Abelmoschus esculentus, Laetuea sativa, Solanum melongena, Allium cepa, Allium sativum, Allium ameloprasum, Raphanus sativus, Capsicum annum, Vicia faba, Daucas carota and Asparagus officinalis hold promise under organic farming. The different components of growing vegetables organically comprising over crops via-a-vis tillage affect, soil health, control on weed emergence and disease incidence; microbial fertilizers versus crop nutrition; role of mycorrhiza in nutrient mobilization, better resistance towards biological crop protection besides improvement in yield and quality; agronomic importance of vermicompost and its role in soil aggregate stability; the influence of other organic substrates in crop quantitative and qualitative imporvements have been throughly envisaged.
