Abstract

A field experiment was carried out at Jamune-1, Gunadi, Tanahun, Nepal on farmer’s field during September, 2009 to February, 2010 to test the efficacy of cattle urine from gutter alone and in combination with urea as a potential supplement to nitrogenous fertilizers in improving yield and quality of cauliflower cv. Kathmandu Local. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design with eight treatments; 100 kg N ha-1 supplied by urea, 100 kg N ha-1 supplied by urine, 125 kg N ha-1 supplied by urine, 75 kg N ha-1 supplied by urine, 50 kg N ha-1 supplied by urine, 100 kg N ha-1 supplied by urea (75 kg) and urine (25 kg), 100 kg N ha-1 supplied by urea (50 kg) and urine (50 kg), 100 kg N ha-1 supplied by urea (25 kg) and urine (75 kg) having three replications. Application of 125 kg N ha-1 through urine significantly increased vegetative characters. Application of 100 kg N ha-1 through urine significantly increased yield and quality characters as compared to application of either higher or lower dose of urine. Fifty percent substitution of urea by urine produce better morphological, yield and quality character than other combination of urine and urea. The highest curd yield (20.08 t ha-1), the best result in sensory evaluation, and the highest benefit cost ratio (5.84) were observed by application of 100 kg N ha-1 through urine.
