Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at crop research farm, Department of soil science and Agricultural chemistry, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology And Sciences, Prayagraj, (Uttar Pradesh) during kharif 2019 on sandy loam soil. The experiment was laid out according to randomized block design with three replications. The experiment comprised of three fertility levels  (control, 50% recommended dose of fertilizers, 75% recommended dose of fertilizers) and three biofertiliizers levels (Azospirillum, Phosphorous solubilising bacteria, Azospirillum + Phosphorous solubilising bacteria) were applied to the baby corn variety G-5414. The application of 75 % recommended dose of fertilizers and seed inoculation with Azospirillum + Phosphorous solubilising bacteria significantly increased the organic carbon, available nitrogen and potassium content in soil. However, bulk density and particle density was found non significant after harvesting of the crop because these properties don’t change in one cropping season. While there was a slight increase in solid space and specific gravity in T10 (Phosphorous solubilising bacteria+Azospirillum@20 g kg-1 + 75%recommended dose of fertilizers), %pore space and water retaining capacity was highest in T4 (Azospirillum + Phosphorous solubilising bacteria @ 20g kg-1 + 0% recommended dose of fertilizers).
