Abstract

The present study on the effect of organic nutrients on leaf yield and quality of moringa (Moringa oleifera Lam.) cv. PKM-1 was carried out in the vegetable unit, Department of Horticulture, Faculty of Agriculture, Annamalai University, Annamalai Nagar during 2018–19. The experiment was carried out with 13 treatments and three replications under randomized block design. The observations on yield characters were recorded at 35 days interval and totally six harvests were made during the study period. Among the different treatments, the treatment T8-Vermicompost @ 5 t/ha+azospirillum and phosphobacteria @ 2 kg/ha+panchakavya @ 3% foliar spray, recorded the maximum values for number of leaves, leaf weight, herbage yield/ha and chlorophyll content and it was closely followed by T12-Vermicompost @ 5 t/ha+azospirillum and phosphobacteria @ 2 kg/ha+neemcake extract @ 10% foliar spray, recorded higher values for yield/ha.
