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