Abstract:

The field experiment was carried out at MARS, Dharwad during Kharif, 2010-11 and 2011-12 to study the “Beneficial microbial load under organic cotton production system ” Among the nutrient management practices, integrated application of EC (1/3) + VC (1/3) + gliricidia GLM (1/3) equivalent to RDF recorded significantly higher Integrated application of EC (1/3) + VC (1/3) + gliricidia GLM (1/3) equivalent to RDF recorded significantly higher bacteria, fungal, actinomycetes, N2-fixers, enzymes mainly phosphatase and dehydrogenase activity and soil respiration rate (73.19 cfu X106/ g of soil, 26.84 cfu X103/ g of soil, 39.65 cfu X102/ g of soil and 29.52 cfu X103/ g of soil, respectively) at 60 DAS as compared to application of FYM @ 5 t ha-1 + RDF. Among the different treatment combinations, application of EC (1/3) + VC (1/3) + gliricidia GLM (1/3) equivalent to RDF with foliar spray of panchagavya @ 5% recorded significantly higher bacteria, fungi, actinomycetes and N2-fixers over RDF + FYM


Keywords: Uptake and soil availability of N, P, K and microbial population
