Abstract:

Application of residual coconut water and spent wash obtained from desiccated coconut mills has relatively enhanced the phyllosphere and rhizosphere microflora of gherkin under glass house condition. Among the different concentrations of residual coconut water and spent wash, the 10 per cent of spent wash showed higher phyllosphere populations at 45 days after sowing, such as bacteria, yeast and actinobacteria (0.316, 0.295 and 0.133 x 104 cfu /cm2) and rhizosphere microflora viz., bacteria, fungi and actinobacteria (58.33 x 105, 10.80 x 104, 14.00 x 103cfu g-1 of soil) and beneficial microflora like Azotobacter sp, Phosphate solubilizing bacteria and Pseudomonas sp. (14.67, 9.00 and 18.30 x  105cfu g-1 of soil) as compared to control.


Keywords: Phyllosphere and rhizosphere microflora.
