Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2016-2017 at the Students' Instructional Farm of Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh to assess the “impact of fertility levels and biofertilizers on root architecture, yield and nutrient uptake by crop”. The experiment was comprised of 12 treatment combination in split plot design with three replications. The results showed that, application of 100% RDF significantly enhanced root parameters, yield and nutrient uptake over control plot. Among the different biofertilizers treatments, application of Rhizobium + PSB + PGPR had significant effect on root parameters and enhanced yield and nutrient uptake as compared to Rhizobium + PGPR. The combined application of 100% RDF with Rhizobium + PSB + PGPR resulted significantly higher yield of chickpea during rabi season.
