Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season 2014 at P.S.B. Agriculture farm, Visva-Bharati, Sriniketan West Bengal to study the effect of phosphate solubilizing bacteria on growth and productivity of transplanted rice laid out in RBD with three replications. The result revealed that at harvest, highest (1101.11 g) dry matter was accumulated with NPK+PSB which was statistically at par but 7.9%, 8.6%, 13.27% higher than NP0K, NP0K+PSB and NPK, respectively. NP0K+PSB gave the highest (442.22) number of panicle m-2 which was significantly 40.70% and 37.68% higher over N0P0K0+PSB and N0P0K0, respectively. NPK+PSB proved best in influencing growth and productivity, which however at par with NP0K, NPK, NP0K+PSB, and NP0K+PSB+RP except NP0K+PSB+RP for dry matter at harvest. NPK+PSB recorded highest (₹ 52750/-) gross returns but NP0K resulted maximum (₹ 19466/-) net returns.
