Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2015-16 at Research Farm, College of Horticulture, Dr. Y.S.R. Horticultural University, Anantharajupet (Andhra Pradesh), India, to study the effect of biofertilizers and micronutrients on growth, seed yield and quality of coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) cv. Sadhana. The experiment was evaluated in randomized block design with factorial concept consists two factors like biofertilizers and micronutrients. The first factor comprised of seed inoculation with Azospirillum, Phosphate solubilising bacteria, Azospirillum + Phosphate solubilising bacteria and control (without any biofertilizer) and the second factor consists foliar spray of Zinc sulphate, Copper sulphate, Ferrous sulphate each at @ 0.5% and control (without any micronutrient). Sixteen treatment combinations were replicated thrice. Among the treatments, seed inoculation with Azospirillum + Phosphate solubilising bacteria+ foliar spray of zinc sulphate @ 0.5% recorded maximum plant height, number of primary branches, number of secondary branches, days to maturity, number of umbels per plant, umbellets per umbel, seeds per umbel, 100 seed weight, seed yield g per plant, seed yield kg per hectare, Total carbohydrates, essential oils, oleoresins, moisture content. While, the lowest Days to germination was maximum with seed inoculation of Azospirillum + Phosphate solubilising bacteria + foliar spray of ferrous sulphate @ 0.5%.
