A field study was conducted during 2018-19 on “Effect of integrated nutrient management (INM) on morpho-physiological and yield of safed musli” at KRC college of Horticulture, Arabhavi, Gokak, Karnataka. The research results revealed that plant supplied with panchagavya recorded maximum leaf area (581.57 cm2), leaf area index (1.29), CGR (2.13 g m2 day-1 at 30-60 DAP), fresh root yield (31.15 g plant-1 ­and 33.42 q ha-1), dry root yield (5.77 q ha-1) and fresh peeled root yield (21.34 g plant-1). Among inorganic and organic source of nutrients application, 100 per cent RD NPK 50:40:40 kg ha-1 recorded significantly maximum leaf area (635.71 cm2), LAI (1.41), CGR (3.47 g m2day-1), significantly fresh root yield (36.16 g plant-1 and 36.26 q ha-1, respectively), fresh peeled root yield (26.40 g plant-1) and dry root yield of 6.33 q ha-1. Among interaction, application of panchagavya (3%) + 100 per cent RD NPK 50:40:40 kg ha-1 recorded significantly maximum leaf area (671.05 cm2), LAI (1.49), CGR (3.70g m2day-1), significantly highest fresh peeled root yield (30.51g plant-1) and fresh root yield (38.34 q ha-1).
