Yield, quality and enzyme activities in rice - Fallow sorghum as influenced by nutrient management
Author(s): N Goutami and P Prasuna Rani
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during Rabi, 2012 at Agricultural College Farm, Bapatla to study the effect of inorganics, bio-fertilizers and FYM on yield, quality and enzyme activities in rice fallow sorghum. Results indicated that significantly higher number of grains per ear, grain yield and stalk yield were recorded by the integrated treatment that received 150 kg N ha-1 + FYM + Bio-fertilizers followed by150 kg N ha-1 + FYM and 120 kg N ha-1 + FYM + Bio- fertilizers as compared to control. The treatment receiving 90 kg N ha-1 + FYM + Bio-fertilizers was at par with application of 150 kg N ha-1 in grain sorghum production. The protein content of the grain was significantly influenced by imposed treatments while no such effect was noticed with carbohydrates. Addition of inorganics in combination with organics and bio-fertilizers proved to be more efficient in improving the enzyme activities (urease and dehydrogenase) significantly.
