EFFECT OF RHIZOBIUM INOCULATION ON THE BIOMASS PRODUCTION OF VICIA FABA L.

KRISHNENDRA SINGH NAMA AND RASHMI VARMA

Abstract

Leguminous green crops improve the quality of soil in many ways with these improvements often being reflected in subsequent increases in crop production (Palh, 2001; Marwaha, 1995). The ability of faba bean to improve soil fertility is enhanced by effective Rhizobium inoculation. The present investigation found that biomass production of Vicia faba L. increased significantly, when inoculated with Rhizobium, whereas uninoculated plant did not show such type of increase in biomass production (Patel et al., 1993; Chela et al., 1993; Prasad et al., 1994; Fisinin et al., 1999; Ghosh et al., 2000).
