Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to study the impact of Terminalia arjuna (Roxb.) leaf litter and hosted tasar silkworm excreta on quality of paddy and soil porosities cv. GNR 4 and laid out in nine treatments with Completely Randomized Design. The study revealed that the protein content of grain and nitrogen content of grain, straw recorded statistically higher with the application of 50% RDN through inorganic fertilizer + 50% RDN from arjuna hosted tasar silkworm excreta. However, protein yield and nitrogen uptake by grain and straw were recorded higher with the 75% RDN through inorganic fertilizer + 25% RDN from arjuna hosted tasar silkworm excreta. Further, it showed that the available nitrogen was found higher in 75% RDN through inorganic fertilizer + 25% RDN from arjuna hosted tasar silkworm excreta. Whereas, P2O5 were recorded higher under 100% RDN from arjuna hosted tasar silkworm excreta. Soil organic carbon and K2O were recorded significantly maximum under the 100% RDN from leaf litter. Furthermore, soil bulk density and pH reduced, while porosity increases in 100% RDN from leaf litter. The quality of the paddy was improved under 50% RDN through inorganic fertilizer + 50% RDN from arjuna hosted tasar silkworm excreta, but 100% RDN from leaf litter improves soil properties.
