EFFECT OF ORGANIC MANURES ON SCMR, PROTEIN CONTENT AND QUALITY IN MAIZE

Ramesh Thatikunta1, Swarajya Lakshmi G2, and Prabhu Prasadini2

Abstract

An experiment was conducted with organic sources like Enriched Microbial Compost (EMC), Poultry manure (PM), FYM to study the changes in total protein content, quality and seed yield of Maize. Addition of organic manures improved the SPAD chlorophyll content of the leaves. EMC followed by PM treatments increased the protein content. Protein characterization with SDS PAGE with EMC 3 t ha-1 revealed new bands of 43 and 66 kDa. Application of EMC @ 1 t ha-1 recorded maximum yields over PM and FYM. Higher doses of EMC @ 5 t ha-1 proved detrimental to crop yields.
