Effect of potassium and zinc solubilizing microorganism on growth, yield and quality of mungbean


Author(s): Navsare RI, Mane SS and Supekar SJ

Abstract: A Field experiment was conducted in kharif season 2016-17 at experimental farm of Department of Soil Science and Agril. Chemistry, College of Agriculture, Badnapur using mungbean as a test crop to studies on effect of potassium and zinc solubilizing microorganism on growth, yield and quality of mungbean. The experiment was laid out on Vertisols with five treatment combination, replicated four times in randomized block design. The treatment consists of T1 Absolute control (No fertilizer application), T2 RDF (25:50:00 N, P2O5 and K2O ha-1 kg ha-1), T3 (RDF + Rhizobium + PSB + KSB), T4 (RDF + Rhizobium + PSB + KSB + ZSB), T5 (RDF + Rhizobium + PSB + KSB + ZSB). The results emerged out clearly indicated that various growth parameters like, germination percentage, number of pods, number of nodules, dry matter, and seed yield was increased due to application of potassium and zinc solubilizing microorganism. It was inferred from the results that application RDF + Rhizobium + PSB + KSB + ZSB (T5) found superior over control application. The KSB and ZSB application showed synergistic effects on other nutrients (N, P, K) uptake. Soil fertility was also found to be improved due to application of potassium and zinc solubilizing microorganism to mungbean.
