Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Main Sugarcane Research Station Farm of Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari. Four treatment of insecticides viz. T0 Control, T1 Phorate 10G (1.5 kg a.i./ha), T2 Carbofuran 3G (1 kg a.i./ha), T3 Chloran traniliprole 0.4G (0.1 kg a.i./ha) were taken and applied at 60 days after planting. The soil samples were periodically collected at 1, 10, 30, 60 days after application of phorate and at the time of harvest and analyzed on the same day by serial dilution technique. The total bacterial count was significantly higher in treatment of phorate but remained statistically at par with treatment of chloran traniliprole and carbofuran. The total bacterial count was also significantly higher at the time of harvesting of sugarcane. The treatment receiving phorate gave significantly higher actinomycetes population in soil but remained at par with the treatment of carbofuran. In case of days after application, the total actinomycetes population was significantly higher at the time of harvest of sugarcane. The application of insecticides didn’t show any significant effect on fungi population. However, in case of days after application the significantly higher fungi population was found at the time of harvest of sugarcane but remained statistically at par with fungus population at 60 days after application of insecticides.
