Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2014-15 to investigate the effect of different levels of bio- inoculants (Azotobacter and PSB) in combination with four levels of NPK fertilizers on yield and nutrient uptake of garlic cv. ‘GHC-1’. The increased bulb yield was to the tune of 25.86%, 12.99% and 9.81% with the combination of bio- inoculants (Azotobacter + PSB), PSB and Azotobacter, respectively over un-inoculated control. The highest bulb yield (20 t ha-1) was recorded when the plots were supplemented with 100% NPK + garlic cloves dipping of both the inoculants. The result further showed that Azotobacter and PSB +100 % RDF inorganic recorded higher nutrient uptake of NPK as compared to other treatment combinations. Bio-inoculants amendment in combination with synthetic fertilizers also improved the soil buildup over the initial soil status.
