EFFECT OF INTEGRATED NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT ON YIELD ATTRIBUTES AND YIELD OF BROCCOLI (BRASSICA OLERACEA VAR. ITALICA) UNDER MID-HILLS CONDITION OF UTTARAKHANDKuriyal H. and Goswami G.
A field experiment was conducted in mid hills of Uttarakhand to evaluate the effect of integrated nutrient management on yield attributes and yield of broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica) at Vegetable Research and Demonstration Block, College of Horticulture, VCSG, Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Bharsar, Uttarakhand in the year 2019. Total 10 different treatment combinations were taken which includes organic manure, inorganic fertilizer and combination of organic and inorganic fertilizer. The crop of broccoli cv.
