Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of inoculation of microbial consortia on growth parameters of green gram. The beneficial microbial strains were collected from the department of Agricultural Microbiology, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. These strains were tested for their compatibility and prepared three different microbial consortia such as rhizosphere consortia-1, rhizosphere consortia-2 and phyllosphere consortia. Each consortium was treated to green gram by seed treatment, soil application and foliar spray along with graded levels of chemical fertilizers and plant growth parameters were recorded at different intervals of time. The treatment inoculated with microbial consortia showed significantly higher soil enzyme activities as compared to the uninoculated treatment. The treatment with 50 percent recommended dose of chemical fertilizers along with microbial consortia can reduce the cost of inputs and significantly enhanced the plant height, number of leaves, branches, number of nodules, nodules weight and chlorophyll content of green gram.
