Abstract:

A two year field study was conducted at RRS, Paiyur to study the influence of co inoculation of biofertilizers viz., Rhizobium, Phosphobacteria and VAM on soil microflora, plant biometric observation and yield parameters at periodical interval. Treatments consisted of STCR recommended dose of fertilizers along with biofertilizers individually and/ or in combination. The control treatment consisted of STCR recommended dose alone. Results revealed that all the parameters were significantly increased when the treatments containing bioinoculants individually and/or in combination with STCR recommended dose of fertilizer compared with STCR recommended dose alone. The pooled analysis of two year (Kharif 2012 and 2013) data revealed that the co inoculation of Rhizobium, Phosphobacteria and VAM along with STCR recommended dose of fertilizers significantly increased the yield of 1040 kg/ha (42.5 percent) with cost benefit ratio of 3.35 compared with STCR alone (730kg/ha). The combination of two biofertilizers, Rhizobium along with Phosphobacteria or VAM significantly increased the yield of 22 percent compared with STCR alone.
