Abstract:

A field experiment was performed in the agriculture field of Departmernt of Horticulture in SHUATS, Allahabad to study the effect of bacterial and fungal biofertilizers on vegetative and yield attributing parameters of Cauliflower (Brassica oleracea botrytis) plant under citrus orchard. Bacterial biofertilizers included phosphorus solubilising microbes (bacteria and fungus) PSB1, PSF1 and potassium solubilising microbes KSB2 and KSF2 which were isolated from the rhizospheric region of vegetable crops. The strains were screened by employing qualitative plating techniques. The isolates showing maximum zones were screened for further analysis. The microbial inoculants coated seeds were sown in fields. After 90 days of sowing, the plant growth parameters like morphological and Bio-chemical parameters were analyzed in Brassica oleracea botrytis plants. The morphological parameters like number of leaves, leaf spread, leaf area, shoot length, fresh plant weight, dry plant weight, phosphorus and potassium in leaves and bio-Chemical parameters like chlorophyll content, protein, carbohydrate, ascorbic acid content, were increased in combined treatment of phosphorus solubilising fungus and potassium solubilizing fungus along with recommended dose of chemical fertilizers in Brassica oleracea than other treatments and control plants. The present work suggests that cauliflower cultivation could be performed in the spaces between main crops and the space could be utilized giving good income for the farmers by giving increased output.
