Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during kharif 2010. The N (24.76, 46.97, 103.76 kg ha-1), P (2.86, 6.18, 17.40 kg ha-1) and K (13.80, 31.20, 61.82 kg ha-1) uptakes by tomato crop at vegetative, flowering and harvest stages respectively, were highest in 75% RDN through fertilizers + 25% RDN through Vermicompost. The fruit yield (84.97 q ha-1) of tomato was highest in 75% RDN through fertilizers + 25% RDN through Vermicompost. The highest available nitrogen of 284.3 and 269.5 kg ha-1 were found at vegetative stage and flowering in 75% RDN through fertilizers + 25% RDN through Vermicompost. The highest available P2O5 (48.3, 43.4 and 42.4 kg ha-1) and K2O (358.6, 350.7 and 332.9 kg ha-1) were recorded in 50% RDN through Vermicompost + 50% RDN through Poultry manure at vegetative, flowering and harvest stage of the crop, respectively.
