Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted on Vertic Heplustepts (Inseptisols) soil of farm, Department of Soil Science and Agriculture Chemistry, College of Agriculture, Latur. The experimental plot was laid out in a randomize block design (RBD) with three replication and eight treatments viz., T1 - Control (RDF 100%), T2-100% RDF + Water spray, T3 - RDF + Compost tea @ 10 % foliar spray, T4 - RDF + Compost tea @ 15% foliar spray, T5-RDF + Compost tea @ 20 % foliar spray, T6 - RDF + Compost tea @ 25 % foliar spray, T7 - RDF + Compost tea @ 50 % foliar spray, T8 - RDF + Compost tea @ 75 % foliar spray. The results indicated that the plant nutrient content, uptake and yield of soybean were significantly increased with foliar application of compost tea. The maximum plant nutrient content, uptake and yield of soybean were recorded in treatment T7 - RDF + Compost tea @ 50 % foliar spray fallowed by T8 - RDF + compost tea @ 75 % foliar spray which was significantly superior over control (RDF). The available N P K and Zn in soil were found significantly decreased over control. Increasing the dose of foliar application of compost tea on soybean a decrease in available NPK status of soil after harvest of the soybean crop. From the above result however concluded that the foliar application of compost tea along with RDF increased nutrient content, uptake and yield of soybean crop and mining of nutrients from soil.
