Amarjeet Kaur and Maninderjit Singh

An investigation was undertaken during 2015-16 to study the effect of organic and inorganic fertilizers on vegetative growth and fruit characteristics in Cape gooseberry cv.‘Aligarh’. The treatments consisted of application of biofertilizers (Azotobacter and Azospirillum) applied alone or in combination with 50%, 75% and 100% NPK +0.70, 1.0, 1.25 and 2.0 t/acreFYM. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with seven treatments replicated four times. Results of the study revealed that the seedlings inoculated with ( NPK 75% + 1.25 t/acre FYM) proved to be the best in terms of maximum plant height, shoot number, shoot length while the seeds inoculated with Azotobacter and Azospirillum+50% NPK+0.70t/a FYM gave maximum yield and took minimum days for fruit maturity.
