Abstract

The present investigation “The effect of biofertilizers on growth, yield and quality of Cape Gooseberry (Physalis peruviana L.) in Prayagraj agroclimatic conditions” was undertaken at Central Research Field, Department of Horticulture, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Prayagraj (UP) during 2022-2023. The main objective of the experiment was to find out the effect of various biofertilizers on yield and quality of Cape Gooseberry and to estimate the economics of various treatments. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with 10 treatment combinations viz, T0 (Control), T1(100% RDF), T2 (100% RDF+ Azotobacter) 10g, T3 (100% RDF + Azospirillium) 10g, T4 (100% RDF + Azotobacter)10g, T5 (75% RDF= Azotobacter) 10g, T6 (75% RDF + Azospirillium) 10g, T7 (75% RDF + Trichoderma) 10g, T8 (75% RDF + Azotobacter + Azospirillium) 10g, T9 (75% RDF + Azotobacter + Azospirillium + Trichoderma) 10g with three replications. From the present investigation treatment T9(75% RDF + Azotobacter + Azospirillium + Trichoderma) 10g performed best in terms of yield parameters, (fruit weight (10.39g), and quality parameters Acidity (0.14%), of Cape Gooseberry. However, the highest B:C ratio was found in Treatment.
