Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2015 on loamy sand soil at the Agronomy farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Rajasthan). The experiment consisted of four levels of phosphorus (Control, 20, 40 and 60 kg P2O5 ha-1) and four treatments of biofertilizers (Control, PSB, Aspergillus awamori and PSB + Aspergillus awamori) thereby, making sixteen treatment combinations and replicated thrice. The results indicated that application of phosphorus upto 40 kg P2O5 ha-1 recorded the highest number of total and effective number of nodules per plant, plant height, leaf area index, total chlorophyll content, grain yield (1221 kg ha-1) and straw yield (2988 kg ha-1) which was at par with 60 kg P2O5 ha-1. Results further indicated that seed inoculation with the PSB and Aspergillus awamori significantly increased highest number of total and effective number of nodules per plant, plant height, leaf area index, total chlorophyll content, grain yield (1260 kg ha-1) and straw yield (3140 kg ha-1) over the rest of the treatments. The seed inoculation with PSB and Aspergillus awamori individually remained at par.
