Background ‘Vrikshayurveda’, an ancient science of plant life described by Surapala, has clearly outlined a systematized agricultural practice that insisted on the use of Kunapa jala (KJ) and Pancha gavya (PG) to enhance the yield and quality of plants. Objective An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of KJ and PG on growth, physiological, biochemical, quality attributes and yield of Withania somnifera Dun. Materials and methods The effect of KJ and PG was evaluated in comparison… Expand
Traditional Horticulture Practices Increase the Production of Selected Withanolides in Withania Somnifera (L.) Dunal-A RP-UFLC Analysis.
It is concluded that the enhanced production of withanolides can be achieved by the application of PG when compared to NPK application and RP-UFLC method for simultaneous detection of with ethanolides has been developed and validated. Expand
Fruit yield and quality characteristics of high density Prunus persica (L.) Batsch plantation intercropped with medicinal and aromatic plants in the Indian Western Himalayas
The results suggest that fruit productivity and quality can be improved through careful integration of fruit trees and medicinal crops. Expand
Production and potential of ancient liquid organics panchagavya and kunapajala to improve soil health and crop productivity: A review
During the last 5- 6 decades the indiscriminate use of agro-chemicals has adversely affected the soil fertility, crop productivity, quality of agriculture and natural products with particularly theExpand


Validation of ancient liquid organics - Panchagavya and Kunapajala as plant growth promoters
Application of panchagavya in all the three vegetables significantly induced production of defense related enzymes such as Polyphenol oxidase that could have enhanced the induced systemic resistance in the plant body, which in turn would have reduced the disease incidence. Expand
Effect of nitrogen fertilizer management on growth analysis of rice cultivars.
Results indicated that cultivar and nitrogen fertilizer significantly effected on grain yield, and Khazar and Ali Kazemi have the highest grain yield among cultivars. Expand
Response of Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera L.) to sowing dates and organic liquid fertilizer (Vit-ORG)
The results showed that the nutritional contents were significantly affected by sowing dates and organic liquid fertilizer ( Vit-ORG) and percentage of fixed oil in leaves and roots during both growing seasons. Expand
Integrated nutrient management in Isabgol (Plantago ovata Forsk.)
An experiment was carried out in the Department of Horticulture, Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur (U.P.), India on “Integrated nutrient management in IsabgolExpand
Evaluation of diploids and autotetraploid genotypes of ashwagandha (Withania somnifera Dunal.) for growth, yield and quality characters.
There is apparent lack of improved varieties of ashwagandha to increase the yield potential, and the available variability for higher growth, yield and quality was evaluated. Expand
Effect of spacing and fertilizer levels on physiological parameters in relation to productivity of ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)
A spacing of 15 cmx10 cm proved superior over the other spacings in enhancing physiological parameters, viz leaf area index, leaf area duration, net assimilation rate, and yield attributes resulting in increased dry root yield. Expand
Comparative Study on Effects of Vrikshayurveda and Modern Techniques on Germination of Bakuchi (Psoralea corylifolia L.) Seeds
Group treated following the method mentioned in Vrikshayurveda can be considered beneficial alternative in terms of better and safe germination. Expand
Evaluation of physiological, growth and yield responses of a tropical oil crop (Brassica campestris L. var. Kranti) under ambient ozone pollution at varying NPK levels.
A field study was conducted to evaluate the impact of ambient ozone on mustard plants grown under recommended and 1.5 times recommended NPK doses at a rural site of India using filtered (FCs) and non-filtered open top chambers (NFCs). Expand
Plant characteristics, growth and leaf yield of Aloe vera as affected by organic manure in pot culture.
It was revealed that urea had a little effect on plant character of Aloe vera over organic manure (cowdung). Expand
Harvesting period management for production of quality roots of Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera Dunal).
Significantly highest root yield was recorded with the harvesting at 100% flowering stage over all the treatments except berry ripening stage and the highest fibre content was recorded at maturity stage. Expand
