Abstract:
The performance of cauliflower crop under varying sources of organic manures available in an integrated farming system was evaluated at FSRS, Kottarakkara during December 2011 to March 2012. The different sources tried were goat manure, poultry manure, vermicompost at 50 per cent level substitution of nitrogen, 100 per cent organic nutrition and 100 per cent chemical fertilizers. Analysis of the results revealed curdyields to be betterfor the organically grown plants and the curds raised with organic and integrated sources were found to retain the quality longer than chemical fertilizer application. Low temperature storage proved better than open storage.The economic analysis proved that organic nutrition with the biowastes available within the farming system was more economic and sustainable compared to the use of purchased chemical inputs.
