Abstract

Farmers use inorganic fertilizers in order to increase the soil fertility. Though they promote the growth of crop, susceptibility to diseases is the negative impact by either over or improper utilization. At times, it may give rise to pathogenic mutants. All these negative factors could be overcome by application of biofertilizers. In the present study, Growmore a wholesome Biofertilizer of Suvash Biogenics Pvt. Ltd. was selected to study its effect on the morpho-physiological parameters of Brassica juncea (L.) CzernCoss]. Suphala (N:P:K :: 15:15:15) an inorganic fertilizer of Rasthtriya Chemicals & Fertilizers Ltd. was chosen for the comparative study. The morpho-physiological parameters selected for the studies were germination potential, shoot length, biomass and phosphate uptake on B. juncea. Present findings revealed that plants treated with 25%, 50%, 75% and even 100% Growmore biofertilizer showed fresh, green and healthy foliage in relation to plants treated with Suphala wherein germination at these high doses gave 100% burning of the seeds with 0% germination. It was also found that Suphala has to be used in very minor quantities. Different combinations of Growmore and Suphala [at a very low concentration] showed relatively better growth rate and refreshing healthy foliage. Phosphate uptake was increased when Growmore was supplemented with Suphala. Plants treated with only inorganic fertilizer showed significantly less growth. Growmore enriched the soil with triple combination of cellulose degraders, nitrogen fixers, and phosphate solubilizers along with humus made from castings of Red Wrigglers. Hence its application helped in optimum growth of the plant system.
