R. Bhuvaneswari* K. Dhanasekaran** S. Suganthi ***

Abstract:-

Radish is a root vegetable that resembles beet root or turnip in appearance and textures but have a distinct flavour.  The specialty of the vegetable is that both root portion as well as the leaf portion can be used as vegetables.  In the present study, an attempt was made to improve the productivity of radish by integrating humic acid extracted from lignite along with organic manures and inorganic fertilizers.  The pot experiment was conducted to study the combined effect of soil and foliar application of humic acid on the growth and yield of Radish. Two best doses of LHA obtained in soil (30mg kgm-1) and foliar application (0.3%) were selected from the previous pot experiments and tried in combination.  Further, the effect of foliar application of micronutrients enriched LHA were also tested along with soil application of LHA. The experiment was conducted in completely randomized design (CRD) with fifteen treatments and each treatment was replicated six times The soil samples were collected from three different vegetable growing locations
