Abstract:

Ocimum sanctum is an important medicinal and aromatic plant widely grown tropical and subtropical climate in India. The present investigation was conducted to study the effect of biofertilizers and Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (VAM) on Basil (Ocimum sanctum). In this biofertilizers viz., Azospirillum, Azotobacter, Phosphate solublizing bacteria (PSB), VAM and in various combinations were applied and observed the plant height, girth of plant, number of branches, number of leaves per plant, leaf area index, nitrogen and phosphorous content. Results revealed that the combined soil application of Azotobacter (25%), Azospirillum (25%), PSB (25%) and VAM (25%) showed better results than the individual applications. The combined effect of biofertilizers and VAM improves the plant growth and productivity.


Keywords: Azospirillum, Azotobacter, Phosphate solublizing bacteria, Holy basil, Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhizae
