Correlation of soil mycoflora and productivity in organic and inorganic farming of Triticum aestivum
Author(s): Gachande BD, Shaikh NF
Abstract: In present investigation a field experiment was conducted in a Triticum aestivum field during 2010-2013, to study the effect of various fermented liquid organic inputs and inorganic inputs on rhizosphere and Non-rhizosphere mycoflora population and yield. The soil rhizosphere and Non-rhizosphere mycoflora population was studied by using serial dilution technique. Result observed that application of organic inputs like Farm yard manure, Beejamruth and Jeevamruth increases rhizosphere and Non-rhizosphere fungal population in terms of colony forming unit (CFU) in organic field. The application of inorganic inputs lowers the rhizosphere and Non-rhizosphere mycoflora population (CFU) compare to organic field of Triticum aestivum. The yield obtained in organic field was higher than inorganic field and it is significantly correlated with the mycoflora population.
