Abstract:

Crop residue (CR) retention is one of the viable option for improving soil properties as well as soil microbial community. Different enzymatic activity in soil is used as indicator of soil biological health. Experiment was conducted to access the crop residue retention and P fertilization on fluorescein diacetate activity (FDA) in soil which is an important indicator of microbial activity vis-a-vis biological health of soil. Maize-wheat cropping system is the third most important cropping system after rice-wheat and rice-rice cropping system in India. Crop residue retention @50% and 75% significantly enhanced fluorescein diacetate activity of soil, irrespective of soil sampling zone and depth. FDA in soil was significantly higher in rhizospheric soil than the non-rhizospheric soil. Both in rhizospheric and non rhizospheric soil (0-5 cm), FDA had significant and positive relation with P fertilization.
