EFFECT OF DIFFERENT SOURCES OF NITROGEN ON YIELD AND QUALITY OF CABBAGE (BRASSICA OIERACEA VAR. CAPITATA)A.D. Jagtap, D.D. Jagtap, A.S. Kadam and S.13. Patil
The treatment T, (50 per cent N through poultry manure + 50 per cent N through urea) had given significantly positive effect on yield of cabbage which was followed by the treatment TB (50 per cent through FYM + 50 per cent through urea). The preference of organic manures should be given as poultry manure, FYM and vermicompost. The quality parameters viz., T.S.S. was recorded maximum in treatment T10 various storage conditions affects keeping quality of cabbage head. Polythene bags were found to be superior storage condition as compared to open condition, paper and cloth bags. In open condition, treatment T2 was recorded minimum weight loss, in polythene and cloth bags, treatment 1-, was recorded minimum weight loss of cabbage head after 15 days of storage and in paper bags, treatment T2 was recorded minimum weight loss of cabbage head. Maximum loss in weight was observed in cabbage heads stored at open condition and in paper bags. This could be attributed due to accelerated biochemical changes and more losses of sugar and accelerated metabolic activities utilizing more sugars for the accelerated processes.
