Abstract

An experiment was conducted on potato variety Kufri Jawahar to assess the effect of organic components on growth, yield and economic return in potato. The results revealed that combination of crop residues + azotobacter + phosphobacteria + biodynamic approach + microbial culture was the best among all the treatments for most of the growth and yield parameters under study and gave highest net return and B: C ratio. Thus, it can be concluded that the biofertlizers (azotobacter, phosphobacteria, microbial culture and biodynamic approach) are an advantageous source for sustainable organic agriculture, specially for heavy feeder crops like potato.
