A field experiment was conducted during rabi seasons of 2016-17 and 2017-18 at Research Farm of the
Department of Vegetable Science, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. It comprised 16 treatment
levels of fertilizer in randomized block design with three replications. Growth parameters of fennel crop
were significantly affected by the organic and inorganic fertilizer treatments. Maximum benefit : cost
ratio was recorded under treatment T11 i. e. 2.08 with net returns of Rs. 1,19,302.7/ha as compared to
control (T16) i. e. 1.41 and Rs. 43,476.7/ha. There was a net difference of about Rs. 24000/ha which
easily explained the acceptability of treatment to be adopted at the farmer level. The B : C ratio was 1.61
under T9 (100% RDN through Vermicompost+Azotobacter+PSB) which reflected its low repaying capacity.
Key words : : Organic, inorganic fertlizer, treatments, vermicompost, B : C ratio
