Abstract:

The present investigation entitled “Effect of consortium of endophytic nitrogen fixing bacteria on yield and quality of seasonal (Suru) sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum) under drip irrigation” was carried out at AICRP on Water Management, M.P.K.V., Rahuri during 2014-15. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with six treatments and four replications. There were four levels of nitrogen (100%, 50%, 25% and 0%) with P2O5, K2O, PSB, FYM and foliar application of consortium of endophytic nitrogen fixing bacteria with and without combination and set treatment of Acetobacter diazotrophicus. The results of the experiment conducted revealed that the higher total nutrient uptake for N, P and K (243.91, 60.20 and 205.47 kg ha-1, respectively) was recorded in the treatment 25% N + Consortium of Endophytic Bacteria foliar spray. Soil nitrogen balance study revealed that there was a negative balance of nitrogen in all the treatments except RDF 100% N which has positive balance.
