Abstract:

An experiment was conducted at Fruit Research Farm, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Pasighat, Arunachal Pradesh to study the effect of organic mulches on soil properties in acid lime using Randomized Block Design. The study revealed that the soil properties were found to be highly significant. The maximum soil moisture content (33.66 %) was observed in dry grasses mulch (T1) while maximum organic carbon (3.11 %), available nitrogen (428.47 kg/ha), available phosphorus (45.17 kg/ha) and potassium (575.06 kg/ha) were observed in saw dust mulch (T6) (Table 1). The mulching materials especially paddy straw and rice husk mulch imparted significance increase on the soil microbial population. Paddy straw mulch (T3) recorded highest microbial population of bacteria at 83.45 × 105 followed by rice husk mulch (T4) at 74.88 × 105 while highest population of fungi was observed in rice husk mulch (T4) at 119.34 × 105 followed by paddy straw mulch (T3) at 54.77 × 105.
