Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted as a pot experiment to evaluate different levels of Phosphorus, Zinc and Mycorrhizae on growth and soil parameters in bell pepper during 2017. This experiment was carried out in the net house of Department of Soil Science and Water Management, Dr YSPUHF Nauni, Solan, Himachal Pradesh, India. The pot experiment comprised of 24 treatment combinations with 4 levels of Phosphorus i.e. Pi- 0, Pii- 237.5 kg ha-1 Single Super Phosphate, Piii- 355.5 kg ha-1 Single Super Phosphate, Piv- 475 kg ha-1 Single Super Phosphate; 3 levels of Zinc, Zni-5 kg ha-1 Zinc Sulphate, Znii- 7.5 kg ha-1 Zinc Sulphate Zniii- 10 kg ha-1 Zinc Sulphate and 2 levels of mycorrhizal inoculation, Ii – 0 and Iii- 15 g Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi per pot. The results obtained from this investigation was that with increase in application of Phosphorus, Zinc and Arbuscular Mycorrhizae, plant height, root length, total nutrient uptake increased. Along with this mycorrhizae also enhanced the total nutrient uptake by counteracting P-Zn deficiency in the plant.
