Abstract:

The incubation experiment consisting of four levels of vermicompost (0 t ha-1, 1.25 t ha-1, 2.5 t ha-1, 3.7 t ha-1) and three levels of fertilizer ( 0 %, 100 %, 50 % RDF) were taken for analyzing the effect on the microbial biomass carbon, biomass nitrogen and biomass phosphorus in calcareous sandy loam soil at four stages of incubation (3 factors of variations) over a period of one year during kharif, 2018 at Dr. RPCAU, Pusa. During incubation experiment, microbial biomass carbon (MBC), microbial biomass nitrogen, microbial biomass phosphorus elevated from 0th DAI to 115th DAI. The microbial biomass carbon, microbial biomass phosphorus and microbial biomass nitrogen increased 101.84 %, 40.63 %, 42.52 % over control at 115th DAI respectively.
