Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out to find out the response of onion to individual and combined inoculation of vesicular arbuscular mycorrhiza (VAM) and phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) under different levels of phosphorus (P) at FOA Wadura Sopore, Kashmir. The results revealed that, combined inoculation of onion with VAM and PSB significantly increased all the examined parameters during the study as compared to control as well as to their individual inoculations even when the P inoculation was reduced to 75 and 50 % of the recommended dose. However, the best results were obtained at 75% of P with combined inoculation of VAM and PSB as is evident from 29.2 and 8.5% increase in bulb dry weight and bulb yield respectively. Similarly at the same treatment the quality parameters like total soluble salts (TSS), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) content of the bulbs was increased by 26.6, 42.8, 68.4 and 21.7% as compared to control.
