Abstract:

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal symbiosis has a significant impact on sustainable growth and development of various plants as they help to acclimatize with biotic and abiotic conditions. A study was conducted to determine the effects of various mycorrhizae based products at different concentrations on yield and quality of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) cv. Kufri Sindhuri during Rabi 2016-17 at Vegetable research farm, Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, BHU, Varanasi. The experiment consists of 8 treatments involving different mycorrhizal products and untreated (control). Observation on all the characters was made on five random plants of individual plots and in each treatment and replication. The observation recorded on the five plants was averaged to get mean value. From the result, treatment T2- soil application with Myc100 @250g/ha showed very promising result for almost all the characters under investigation viz., number of tubers per plant (11.62), tuber length (6.19 cm), tuber width (4.69 cm), tuber yield per plot (33.7 kg), tuber yield (kg/ha) (32063.73), marketable tuber yield/plot (30.44 kg) as compared to other treatments. This was followed by T8- soil application with Bolt Gr. @ 10kg/ha. At much higher concentration, the mycorrhizal products imposed adverse effects on growth and yield attributes. It can be concluded that mycorrhiza can be used as a remarkable supplement for increasing growth and yield of potato along with commonly used fertilizers.
