Various fertilizers are used in order to increase the yield and quality of the cultivated vegetables. Therefore, products obtained from different sources can be used as fertilizer.The similar cheaper product can be obtain and to utilize as a by-product of Biogas industries waste and used as Fertilizers with nanotechnology is one of it. Fertilizers derived from nanotechnology have started to attract attention in agriculture nowadays. This study was undertaken to use by-product and determine the effects of nanotechnology liquid fertilizer on the plant growth and yield of White Flower cabbage [Brassica oleracea var. botrytis (species of Brassica oleracea)]. The collection of By-product was carried out by Yashraj P. Dholakia( Production Manager ) of Bharat Biogas Plant, situated at Sundalpur Village, Dist-Kheda,Gujarat,India in 2016.Then carried out fine filtration; to utilize ; at college laboratory. The doses of (1) 20.0, (2) 30.0 and (3) 40.0 L ha-1 of Nanopartical liquid Bioliquid fertilizer (NLBF) were used as fertilizer source. The plant leaves were sprayed with Nano liquid Bio fertilizer suspension until becoming wet at fifteen day intervals for four times during plant growth in the two hector each NLBF1, NLBF2, NLBF3 for selected area between fifty hector of plantation in all three seasons Summer, Winter and Monsoon; at Prantij Town of Sabarkantha District,gujarat state,India The results showed that the fertilizer treatments significantly improved the yield compared to control. According to the average of years the highest yield occurred in NBF 40.0 L ha-1 application. As a result, this study suggested that the foliar applications of waste by-product NBF could improve the plant growth and yield of White Flower cabbage.
