Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during 2014-2015 at Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Shivamogga, Karnataka, to know the response of Marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) cv. Double Orange to liquid formulations of effective microbial consortia with graded levels of NPK on nutrient content of soil and plant and total biomass. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with 15 treatments replicated thrice. Significantly higher nitrogen (1.40 %), phosphorus (0.97 %) and potassium content (2.91 %) in the plant was recorded in the treatment which received 75 % RDF + Azotobacter + Bacillus megaterium + Frateuria aurantia (T14), 100 % RDF + Azotobacter + Bacillus megaterium (T9) and 100 % RDF + Bacillus megaterium + Frateuria aurantia (T13), respectively. Maximum available nitrogen (229.46 kg/ha), phosphorus (157.05 kg/ha) and potassium in soil (247.52 kg/ha) was reported with the application of 100 % RDF + Azotobacter (T3), 100 % RDF + Azotobacter + Bacillus megaterium + Frateuria aurantia (T15) and 75 % RD‘N’ and ‘K’ + Azotobacter + Frateuria aurantia + 100 % RD‘P’ (T10), respectively. Similarly, bacteria, fungi and actinomycets population was observed maximum under 75 % RDF + Azotobacter + Bacillus megaterium + Frateuria aurantia (T14) over cent percent RDF (T1).
