Abstract:

Maize is a cereal crop which is cultivated widely throughout the world and has the highest production among all the cereals. Its importance lies in the fact that it is not only used for human food and animal feed but at the same time it is also widely used for corn starch industry, corn oil production, baby corns and bioethanol production etc. In the present investigation enzymes activity was studied during all the three growth stages. During flowering stage T7 - Carrier + Liquid + Biofilmed PSB biofertilizer being the showed highest dehydrogenase activity (81.53 μg TPF d-1 g-1), acid (123.00 μg p-nitro phenol g-1 h-1) and alkaline (146.20 μg p-nitro phenol g-1 h-1) phosphatase activity, urease (11.40 µg of NH4+-N 5g soil-1 2h-1) activity. The major outcome of this study was that Carrier + Liquid + Biofilmed PSB biofertilizer treated Maize (Zea mays) soils of pots showed better enzyme performance in all the(dehydrogenase, phosphatase and urease) activity than other treatments which further resulted in increased plant growth, plant biomass and availability of nutrients
