STUDY ON EFFECT OF BIOFERTILIZER AND VERMICOMPOST ON THE YIELD OF SPINACHP.R. Zade, R. D. Dhorel, S.S. Pande and P.M.Tumane
India is agriculture-based country. The farmers always try to increase the fertility of soil to get maximum yield. Utilization of vermicompost biofertilizers is done to increase the fertility of soil. The soil broadcasting and seed treatments are performed and the results are tested by taking field trial, Azotobacter chrococcum were used for spinach seed treatment and Pseudomonas aeroginosa for compost treatment in carrier and broth as per the need. The treated spinach seed were sown into the soil in which biofertilizer treated compost was added. After complete vegetative growth harvesting of spinach crop was done. Physical, chemical and biological parameters were tested. From the above parameters, it can be proved that Biofertilizer not only increase the yield but also increase NPK uptake of spinach. Thus, the result show use of biofertilizer and compost treatment increase the yield but also helps in increasing the natural microbial count. This leads to natural increase in the fertility of soil.
