ABSTRACT

An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of INM on vegetative growth, flowering and fruiting of Andrographis paniculata. The experiment was followed in a randomized block design with 8 treatments. The different treatments were T1- no treatment, T2- vermicompost, T3-biofertilizers, T4-chemical fertilizers, T5- biofertilizers + vermicompost, T6- biofertilizers + chemical fertilizers, T7- chemical fertilizers + vermicompost, T8- biofertilizers + chemical fertilizers + vermicompost. The results indicated that maximum growth i.e. plant height, number of branches, number of leaves, leaf length and breadth, leaf area, land area occupied by per plant and leaf area index, number of flowers and fruits of A. paniculata was found in T8 plot treatment compare to other plots. From the analysis of result it has concluded that integrated use of biofertilizers, chemical fertilizers and vermicompost treatments significantly increased growth parameters of A. paniculata.
