Abstract:

A study on “Effect of textile sludge application on soil microbial properties” was conducted at Department of Environmental Sciences, Advanced Post Graduate Centre, Guntur during 2016-17 with sludge obtained from NSL Textiles Limited, Guntur District, Andhra Pradesh using fine textured soil from RARS, Lam. It was laid out in completely randomized design with three replications often treatments comprising of three levels of textile sludge (3, 5 and 10 t ha-1) each with three types viz., untreated sludge, sludge along with microbial consortium and sludge decomposed with microbial consortium apart from the control i.e., soil alone. Four such sets were maintained to facilitate destructive sampling for estimation of soil microbial properties at initial, 15, 30 and 45 days of incubation. The results revealed that soil fungal and bacterial populations were found to increase from initial to 15 days of incubation and decreased thereafter, from 15 days to 45 days, gradually; whereas the populations increased with increasing doses of sludge.
