ABSTRACT
A field experiment was carried out at Main Agricultural Research Station, University of Agriculral Sciences, Dharwad during kharif, 2010 -11 and 2011-12 to study the nutrient management options for sustainable organic cotton production. The results of the two years pooled data revealed that, combined application of EC (1/3) + VC (1/3) + gliricidia GLM (1/3) equivalent to RDF with foliar spray of panchagavya @ 5% recorded significantly higher kapas yield (1999 kg/ha) over RDF alone. Integrated application of EC (1/3) + VC (1/3) + gliricidia GLM (1/3) equivalent to RDF (Fig. 17) with foliar spray of panchagavya @ 5% recorded significantly higher uniformity ratio (44.65%), fibre length (28.23%), maturity ratio (0.69), bundle strength (22.65 gt) and ginning percentage (35.60%) over RDF + FYM.
