Abstract:

A pot experiment was conducted in the Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Institute of Agricultural Sciences Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India during kharif season of 2015 to investigate the effect of biochar, phosphorus and mycorrhiza on performance of baby corn and its quality. The treatments included two levels of phosphorus viz. P @ 50% RDF and no P along with full dose of nitrogen and potassium and four levels of biochar. Biochars used were prepared from rice husk, lantana and parthenium each applied @ 4.545 g kg-1 soil. Two levels of mycorrhiza (inoculated and uninoculated) were also included in the treatments. Investigation indicates that valuable effects of biochar could be obtained if it was applied with mycorrhiza. Combined application of biochar (10 t ha-1 soil), phosphorus along with mycorrhiza produced significantly higher uptake of nutrients in baby corn. Biochars are highly variable in nutrient composition and availability, which are determined by types of feedstock and pyrolysis conditions. The results suggest that high-ash biochars with phosphorus are potential P sources with high-agronomic efficiency.
