Abstract:

The present investigation deals with the effect of integrated nutrient management practices on soil biological properties in an established orchard of acid lime (Citrus aurentifolia Swingle). The experiment was undertaken with eleven treatments (T) including a control in randomized block design at PDKV, Akola, Maharastra during two growing seasons of 2010-11 and 2011-12. The observations were recorded for different soil biological properties such as, soil microbial count, soil microbial biomass carbon, dehydrogenase activity, CO2 evolution, Organic carbon. Among the treatments, ‘T8’ (75% RDF (450:225:225g NPK) + 50Kg FYM+ 500 g AM/Plant + 100g PSB /Plant+200g ZnSO4/plant) followed by treatment ‘T10’ (75% RDF (450:225:225g NPK) + 50Kg FYM+100g Azospirillum + 100g PSB /Plant+200g ZnSO4/plant) showed significant variation as compared to other treatments studied. So, treatments T8 and T10 are recommended to be followed in acid lime cultivation for better growth and development.
