Abstract

An experiment was conducted during 2005-06 to study the effect of fertilizers, biofertilizers and
micronutrients on plant growth, seed yield and quality of brinjal. The results indicated that, application
of 100:100*:50 kg NPK per ha + Azospirillum + Phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) each @ 125 g
per ha (root dipping) along with zinc sulphate (0.2%) spray recorded significantly higher plant
height (89.47 cm), number of branches (32), number of leaves (87), number of fruits (20), fruit yield
(27.06 t/ha), number of seeds per fruit (1852), 1000-seed weight (7.90 g), seed yield (633 kg/ha),
percentage of germination (97), field emergence (91), seedling vigour index (2024) and seedling dry
weight (48.84 mg) over 125:100:50 Kg NPK / ha (RDF) at Dharwad conditions.
