The present investigation entitled “To study the effect of integrated nutrient management on growth and yield of Radish (Raphanus sativus L.)” planned to be carried out at Horticulture Research cum Instructional farm, BTC College of Agriculture and Research Bilaspur (C.G.) during Rabi season of 2021-22. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications and ten treatments comprises of 100% RDF (T1), 75% RDF + FYM@ 2.5 t ha-1 (T2), 75% RDF + Vermicompost @ 1 t ha-1 (T3), 50% RDF + FYM@ 5 t ha-1 (T4), 50% RDF + Vermicompost @2.5 t ha-1 (T5), 75% RDF + FYM @ 2.5 t ha-1 + Consortia (T6), 75% RDF + Vermicompost @ 1 t ha-1 + Consortia (T7), 50% RDF + FYM @ 5 t ha-1 + Consortia (T8), 50% RDF + Vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1 + Consortia (T9), Control plot (T10). The periodical observation on growth, yield attributes were recorded on 30, 45 DAS and at harvest. On the basis of observations it is concluded that T1 (100% RDF) has significant influence and was found superior for almost all the traits under study and it was followed by T7 (75% RDF + Vermicompost @ 1 t ha-1 + Consortia). The maximum values of plant height (38.67 cm, 43.82 cm, 42.7 cm), number of leaves (8.63, 12.1, 10.35), leaf length (16.09cm, 20.15 cm, 23.12 cm), shoot length (27.44 cm, 9.53cm, 9.03 cm), length of roots (20.61 cm), root girth (12.36 cm), fresh weight (178.49 gm), yield of roots (177.55 q ha-1), B:C ratio (3.98) were recorded in T1 (100% RDF) followed by T7 (75% RDF + Vermicompost @ 1 t ha-1 + Consortia), thus can also be suggested for better soil health and environment condition as alternative for chemical fertilizer.
