Influence of organic manures on soil physical properties in cotton under rainfed conditions


Author(s): Manchala Santhosh Kumar, SM Bhoyar and PW Deshmukh

Abstract:
Influence of organic manures on soil physical properties in cotton under rainfed Conditions in Vertisol” was conducted at Cotton Research Unit, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola, during kharif 2015-16.The experiment was laid out in RBD with ten treatments and three replications. Organic sources used were FYM, Vermicompost, Sun hemp, Castor cake, Neem cake and Sun hemp as in-situ green manure crop. The results indicated that after 6th year of organic cotton experimentation, significantly highest reduction in bulk density of soil (1.24 Mg m-3) as well as significantly higher improvement in hydraulic conductivity 1.24 cm hr-1 of soil was reported by the treatment FYM @ 10 t ha.
