Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted at Soil and Water Management Farm of Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari to study the comparative effect of different organic manures on WSA and available nutrients. The experiment comprised of nine treatment of banana pseudostem scutching waste (SW), FYM and biocompost (BC) with or without combination and applied as FYM @ 10 t ha-1 carbon equivalent basis keeping the common dose of recommended inorganic fertilizer. After harvest of the crop there were no significant changes observed with respect to soil pH, EC and organic carbon content of the soil. While, significantly higher values of WSA (1.0 mm and >1.0 mm), available macronutrients (N, P2O5, K2O and S) and micronutrients (Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu) content of soil were found with 100% FYM (O0) at 0-15 and 15-30 cm depth of soil and this remained statistically at par with treatment O2 (100% BC) and O6 (75% FYM + 25% SW) in almost all the cases.
