Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out at farmers’ fields in village wadura (Sopore) of district Baramulla J&K during kharif 2013 and 2014 to assess the impact of phosphate solubilizing bacterial strain and inorganic fertilizers on growth and yield of Tomato cv. ‘SHALIMAR-1’.The treatments comprised of 2 levels of biofertilizers (control, PSB) in combination with 5 levels of inorganic fertilizers [0, 25, 75, 50 and 100% recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) N and K]. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design with each treatment replicated three times. Maximum plant height (164.24 cm), fruit yield (1.429 Kg plant-1), No. of Branches (7.85 plant-1) and Phosphorus (%) in fruit (0.48%) were recorded in treatment (PS6) +75% NK. The use of PSB in combination with different N and K levels increased the phosphorus content in fruit over control. Maximum Phosphorus content (%) in fruit (0.48%) was observed in treatment combination of (PS6) +75% NK.
