Abstract:

Kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum L.), a nutritious coarse cereal is vulnerable to partial root parasite Striga asiatica in low fertile soils and may be resulted in economic yield loss. Reduction in Striga related parameters was recorded in kodo millet using organic fertilizers enriched with microbes in Vivo. Soil application of farm yard manure (FYM) and vermi-compost (VC) enriched with Trichoderma spp., Azospirillum spp. and Glomus intraradices significantly reduced the emerged Striga count plot-1 (NS), Striga vigour ratings (SVR), Striga severity (SS) and value of area under Striga number progress curve (ASNPC) in kodo millet. Reduction ranging from 60.2 to 79.5% in NS, 70.6 to 92.2% in SS and an increase of 14.0 to 54.2% in grain yield ha-1 was recorded in different treatments. Lowest values of NS, SVR, SS and ASNPC were recorded in application of 100% recommended dose of fertilizers i.e. 40: 20 : 0 kg NPK ha-1. Among the treatments of organic fertilizers enriched with microbes, lowest value of NS, SVR, SS and ASNPC were recorded in soil application of FYM (2.5 t ha-1) + VC (1.25t ha-1) enriched with Trichoderma + Azospirillum @ 2 kg/tones of manure closely followed by application of FYM (2.5 t ha-1) + VC (1.25t ha-1) enriched with Trichoderma @ 2 kg/tones of manure before sowing and both the treatments were at par. Maximum grain yield was also recorded in the same treatments.
