GROWTH, PRODUCTIVITY AND ECONOMICS OF CABBAGE (BRASSICA OLERACEA VAR. CAPITATA L.) IN GIRD ZONE AS INFLUENCED BY DIFFERENT LEVELS OF ZINC AND SULPHURBalkrishan Singh, Rohatash Singh and A.K. Barholia
A field experiment was conducted at Gwalior in M.P. during the Rabi season of 2010 to study the growth, productivity and economics of Cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. Capitata L.) in Gird Zone as influenced by different levels of Zinc and Sulphur. Results revealed that growth parameters like plant height, plant spread and number of leaves per plant at all crop growth stages (except 20 DAT), yield attributing characters, length and diameter of head and weight per head, cabbage yield per hectare, net return and benefit cost ratio increased with increasing levels of sulphur from 20 to 80 kg/ha and zinc from 2 to 8 kg/ha. The crop responded only upto 60 kg S/ha and 6 kg Zn/ha.
