Recycling of organic wastes could convert them into a value-added product that may be effective even when applied in small quantity compared with the traditional use of their huge quantities. Two field trials were conducted to evaluate the integrated use of recycled organic waste and chemical fertilizers for improving growth and yield of radish. Recycled organic waste (compost) was enriched with an auxin precursor L-tryptohan (@ 6 mg kg compost) and this enriched compost was tested alone and in… CONTINUE READING
