Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted during Kharif-2015 at AICRP on dryland agriculture project, Gandhi Krishi Vignana Kendra (GKVK), UAS, Bangalore to assess the effect of planting geometry, method of establishment and nutrient source on soil microbial population and soil enzymatic activity in finger millet. Application of FYM on N equivalent basis + FYM at 7.5 t ha-1 recorded significantly higher population of bacteria, fungi, actinomycetes (31.58, 16.11 and 10.03, respectively) and higher activity of urease, dehydrogenase, acid phosphatase and alkaline phosphatase activity (22.49 µg NH4-N g soil-1hr-1, 109.01 µg TPF g soil-1 24 hr-1, 28.87 g PNP g soil-1 and 22.76 g PNP g soil-1 urease, respectively) compared to application of recommended dose of FYM at 7.5 t ha-1 + RDF 50:40:37.5 kg N P K ha-1 (30.39, 14.91 and 9.00 respectively for bacteria, fungi and actinomycetes) and 21.59 µg NH4-N g soil-1hr-1, 102.98 µg TPF g soil-1 24 hr-1, 25.56 g PNP g soil-1 and 19.80 g PNP g soil-1, respectively for urease, dehydrogenase, acid and alkaline phosphatase activity of soil. Whereas the other factors like methods of establishment and planting geometry found to be non-significant.
