Abstract

A pot culture experiment was carried out to study the effect of fish bone meal application on uptake of major nutrients by tomato crop during the rabi season. Application of the mineral fertilizer (DAP) with raw and acidulated fish bone meal (RFBM and AFBM) at different levels were imposed and the nutrient content and uptakes of major nutrients by tomato plant and fruits were recorded. 187.5 kg P2O5 as DAP + 62.5 kg P2O5 as AFBM recorded significantly higher NPK uptake which led to enhancement in biomass of tomato crop. 

Keywords: Fish bone meal, phosphorus, tomato, uptake
