Organic inputs being bulky and concentrated in nature are capable of supplying plant nutrients and enhance soil physical environment. These manures containing organically bound macro and other micro-nutrients which influence plant growth and development, which further also play role in maintaining soil sustainability. The use of PGPR is steadily increased in agriculture and offers an attractive way to supplement and/or replace chemical inputs. PGPR are known to increase germination percentage seedling vigour, emergence, plant stand, root and shoot growth, total biomass of the plant, seed weight, early flowering, grains, fodder and fruit yields etc. Also, Panchagavya is a low cost preparation to support plant growth in organic agriculture. Panchagavya contains growth regulatory substances such as IAA (Indole Acetic Acid), GA, Cytokinins, essential plant nutrients, and effective microorganisms like lactic acid bacterium, yeast and actinomycetes. Further, Jeevamrut contains enormous amount of microbial load which multiply and act as soil tonic. Its application enhances microbial activity in the soil and ultimately ensuring the availability and uptake of nutrients by the crops. Even, Amritpani and bio-fertilizer along with chemical fertilizer also affects soil microbial biomass as well as nutrient uptake.

Keywords: Soil fertility and sustainability, PGPR, Panchagavya
