Abstract:

Field trial on the Effect of VA Mycorrhizal fungus and bioformulations on quality, root parameters, beneficial microbial count and economics of fennel under northern dry zone (zone-3) of karnataka was carried out at KRCCH, Arabhavi, Karnataka during Rabi season of 2017 and 2018. There was significant variation was observed for quality, root parameters, beneficial microbial count and economics of fennel due to application of VAM and bioformulations. The maximum anethole content (59.22, 58.92 and 59.07%) was recorded in the treatment T5 (VAM 25 kg ha-1 + Amrutpani 3% (Drench). The highest essential oil content (1.04, 1.05 and 1.05%), Per cent root colonization (96.00, 95.00 and 95.50%), number of chlamydospores per 50 g of soil (1430.00, 1316.00 and 1373.00), length of longest root (26.50, 26.25 and 26.38 cm), number of roots (8.00, 8.00 and 8.00), root volume (70.00, 69.00 and 69.50 cm3), bacterial count (144.00, 134.00 and 139.00 × 106 CFU/g of soil), fungal count (242.00, 225.00 and 233.50 × 103 CFU/g of soil) and actinomycetes count (84.00,78.00 and 81.00 × 104 CFU/g of soil) were recorded in the treatment T9 (VAM 25 kg ha-1 + Panchagavya 3% + Amrutpani 3% + Vermiwash 10% (Drench) + Mulch (Sugar cane trash) in 2017, 2018 and pooled data respectively.
