Abstract: The field experiment was conducted during kharif season 2016-17 at farm, Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry College of Agriculture, Latur. The experiment under soybean with various treatments, T1 Control, T2- 100% RDF, T3- Tank silt @15t/ha + RDF, T4- Tank silt @ l0t/ha + RDF, T5- Tank silt @5t/ha + RDF, T6- Tank silt @ l0t/ha + FYM @ 2.5t/ha + RDF, T7- Tank silt @ 5t/ha + FYM @ 2.5t/ha +RDF, T8-Tank silt @15t/ha + FYM @ 2.5t/ha + RDF, T9-FYM 5t/ha + RDF. The experiment was laid out in RBD design in all there were nine treatments and three replications. The moisture content in the root zone (0-15) increased with increasing rate of tank silt application at fifteen days interval. The maximum soil moisture was found in treatment T3 Tank silt @15 t ha-1 + RDF. The bulk density and pH of soil decreased where as organic carbon content, NPK and DTPA extractable micronutrient was increased and found maximum in treatment T7- Tank silt @ 5 t ha-1 + FYM @ 2.5 t ha-1 + RDF followed by T6-Tank silt @ 10 t ha-1 + FYM @ 2.5 t ha-1 + RDF which was significantly superior over application of tank silt, FYM and RDF alone. Similar trend was observed in case of yield The maximum yield of soybean was noticed in treatment tank silt @ 5 t ha-1 + FYM @ 2.5 t ha-1 + RDF and minimum yield was noticed in control. However, from above concluded that the application of tank silt @ 5 t ha-1 + FYM @ 2.5 t ha-1 + RDF (inorganic fertilizer) improves soil fertility and yield of soybean under Inceptisols. This was clearly showed that the fifty per cent saving of FYM application by tank silt application.
