Effect of Vermicompost, Jeevamrutha and G5-Soil Enricher Granules on the Growth of Amaranthus caudatus
Organic farming is an age old traditional practice evolved by our forefathers where in only organic manures or natural inputs available in the farm are used thus reducing the cost of manufacture against chemical inputs. Organic Agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. Nowadays organic farming practices are in advance importance as farmers have realized the benefits in terms of soil fertility, soil health and sustainable productivity. Effect of Vermicompost, Jeevamrutha and G5 soil enricher granules separately and in combination on the growth and yield of Amaranthus caudatus was determined in the present study. Application of Vermicompost and Jeevamrutha enhanced growth parameters (germination percentage, shoot length, root length, wet weight, dry weight, chlorophyll content, and protein content) in A. caudatus while minimum values were noticed in the case of G5-Soil enricher granules.
