Abstract:

The beneficial microorganisms used in the present study (Rhizobium, Pseudomonas, Azotobacter, Azospirillum) were collected from the department of Agricultural Microbiology, College of Agriculture, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad. All these four microorganisms were added to the biogas manure samples collected from biogas digesters set with six different substrates (cow dung, press mud, poultry litter, kitchen wastes, maize stalks and fruit wastes) after the gas production stopped. The beneficial microorganisms viability in the enriched biogas manures was monitored upto the end of tenth week and the increase in population was observed in all the biogas manures samples indicating that the biogas manure samples from different substrates support the beneficial microorganisms population for atleast 3-4 weeks duration.


Keywords: Cow dung,Press mud,Poultry litter, Kitchen wastes, Maize stalks, Enrichment, Viability.
