Abstract:

Organic farming is an alternative agricultural system it is a useful farming system for the improvement of soil health and microbial properties. The experiments were conducted during 2016-17 in vertisols under the organic and inorganic farming system at farmer’s field of Indore and Ujjain District.  The experiments were laid out in simple randomized block design with four treatments and five replications comprised viz., T1 (Inorganic farming) T2 (< 3 year organic farming) T3 (3-5 year organic farming) T4 (>5 year organic farming). There farmer’s was taken as a replications.  No significantly changes were found in pH and EC with irrespective of the year of organic farming practices. Organic farming significantly enhanced the organic carbon content in soil.  The significantly increased the population of bacterial, fungal and actinomycetes in soil were recorded with the organic farming condition. Similarly, organic farming recorded higher soil microbial biomass carbon. Organic farming treatment > 5 year recorded significantly higher soil biological properties followed by treatment 3-5 year organic farming, <3 year organic farming and inorganic farming.
