A field experiment was conducted at the Instructional Farm of Sardar Patel University, Balaghat (M.P.), during kharif season of 2020-21, To evaluate the influence of “Effect of Integrated Nutrient Management in Brinjal (Solanum melongena L)” Totally 08 different treatments consisting of alone fertilizer and different integrated nutrient management practices both combination have been tried. Among the different integrated nutrient management practices, The yield parameters like number of fruit per plant, length of fruit (cm), diameter of fruit (cm), weight of fruit (g), fruit yield per hectare (q) were significantly superior in the treatment T6 (100% NPK + 25 % N through Vermicompost). Significantly lowest yield parameters were observed in treatment T8 (Local control). Among various integrated nutrient management practices of brinjal. On other hand the cost of cultivation was higher in T5 (50% NPK + 50 % N through Vermicompost + Azotobacter + PSB). On the basis of above findings, treatment T6 (100% NPK + 25 % N through Vermicompost) stand first in position and T7 (100 % NPK + 25 % N through FYM) stand in second order of preference. However, treatment T1 comes in next in order. There for it may be concluded that treatment T6 (100% NPK + 25 % N through Vermicompost) may be prefer for higher growth and yield in brinjal.
