Increased growth and yield of peppers in the field were attributable to a number of positive effects of applications of Vermicompost in field...

Vermicompost substitution influances growth physiological disorder, fruit yield and quality of strawberry

Vermicompost substitution influances growth physiological disorder, fruit yield and quality of strawberry (fragaria x ananassa Duch) Rajbit Singh Vermicompost  application increase plant spread (10,7%) leaf area (23,1%) and dry matter (20,7%), and increase total fruit yield (32,7%) Substitution of vermicompost drastically reduced the increase of physiological disorder like albinism (16,1% – 4,5%), fruit malformation (11,5%-4%) and occurrence ofgrey mould (10,4 – 2,1%) in strawberry indicating that Vermicompost has significant role in reducing nutrient-related disorders and disease like Botrytis rot and thereby increasing the marketable fruit yield up to 58,6% with better quality parameters. Fruit harvested from from plant receiving Vermicompost were firmer, have higher TSS, ascorbic acid content and lower acidity, and have attractive...
