Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at experimental Farm of the Division of Fruit Science, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir, Shalimar, Srinagar during the year 2011 and 2012 to study the physical and chemical properties of soil. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications comprising seven treatments and sole cropping of green gram and plum as controls. The tree spacing was 4 x 4 m and spacing of 40 x 10 cm for green gram intercrop was maintained. Seeds were sown in the month of July, 2011. The different doses of organic manures and fertilizers and green gram intercrop had a positive role in making the nutrients more available. Among the different doses of organic manures and fertilizers, 80 per cent of recommended doses of NPK + FYM + Dal weed + Biofertilizer (rhizobium) were found to be most efficient. The use of organic manures and fertilizers in combination has been found to be more efficient than organic manures alone. Different doses of organic manures and fertilizers are found to be having influence on available nitrogen, available potassium and available phosphorus.
