Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to study the yield of knolkhol and the soil health as influenced by organic inputs and microbial consortium at experimental farm, Department of Horticulture, Jorhat during 2014-15 and 2015-16. Pooled data over two years revealed that T8 [RDF (80:60:60kg NPK + 10t FYM ha-1)] recorded the highest knob yield of 191.45q ha-1 which was followed by 169.73q ha-1 under T7 (Enriched compost 5t ha-1). Soil parameters studies revealed that soil pH (5.62), N (293.82 kg ha-1), P (66.91 kg ha-1), K (141.22 kg ha-1), MBC (315.94µg g-1 soil), dehydrogenase (233.87 µg TPF g-1 soil), phosphomonoesterase (413.77 µg p-nitophenol g-1 soil), fluorescein diacetate (8.60 µg fluorescein g-1 soil), bacterial population (9.11 log cfu g-1 soil) and fungal population (6.11 log cfu g-1 soil) were found better in treatment treated with Enriched compost 5t ha-1 and consortium (T7). However, organic carbon (0.92%) was found to be better in T5 (T1 + Vermicompost 5t ha-1).
