Abstract:

The experiment was conducted to assess Microbial biomass carbon and Nitrogen on 84 days organic and conventional incubated soils in Nadia district of West Bengal. Soil microbial biomass carbon & nitrogen is determined by Chloroform Fumigation Extraction method (FE) followed by Kjeldal Digestion method. The results depicted that, microbial biomass carbon and nitrogen was more in organic soil of Phulia and Gayeshpur district rather than conventional method. The organic plot treated with 1/3rd recommended dose of N from FYM, Vermicompost & Neem Cake showed more level of MBC and MBN content among the other 2 treatment followed in Phulia and the organic plot treated with Sesbania Green Manure+ Vermicompost + Mustard Oil cake showed more level of MBC and MBN content among the other 1 treatment followed in Gayeshpur. Both the microbial biomass C and N showed a significance difference (P ⩽0.05) in the different months of the season.
