Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out to study the efficacy of Azotobacter (AZOMAX) and VAM (ECOMAX-G) on Cotton yield and yield attributing characters at Agriculture Research Station, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Achalpur, Mahrashtra during kharif season of the year 2018-19 and 2019-20. A set of five treatments consist of Azotobacter (AZOMAX) as seed treatment @ 10g per acre seed quantity + 100% of recommended “NPK”, Azotobacter (AZOMAX) as seed treatment @ 10g per acre seed quantity + 100% of recommended “PK” & 75% of recommended “N”, VAM (ECOMAX-G) @ 2.0 kg per acre + 100% of recommended “NPK”, VAM (ECOMAX-G) @ 2.0 kg per acre + 100% of recommended “NK” & 60% recommended “P” and untreated (100 % of recommended “NPK”) were taken under Randomized Block Design with three replication. The experimental results revealed that among the various treatments, application of Azotobacter (AZOMAX) or VAM (ECOMAX-G) along with 100% recommended dose of “NPK”, produced significantly higher seed cotton yield compared to 100% recommended “NPK” alone. It is also revealed that 25% Nitrogen or 40% Phosphorus fertilizers dose could be saved through use of these biofertilizers without impact on yield and would be more beneficial to the farmers. However, the yield levels under reduced dose of fertilizer along with biofertilizer were at par with 100% recommended dose of “NPK”.
