B. Kranthi Kumar, Syed Ismail, Anuradha Pawar and K. Manasa

Abstract

The present investigation was carried out during summer season of 2014-15 on Research farm, Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth, Parbhani to evaluate the effect of different zinc solubilizing microbial cultures on yield, nutrient uptake and quality of soybean grown on Vertisol. Results revealed that highest grain and straw yield of soybean was noticed with RDF + Rhizobium + Trichoderma viride over other treatments. Nutrient content and uptake was also increased with the inoculation of microbial cultures as compared to uninoculated control and highest N, K, S and Zn uptake was found with the treatment RDF + Rhizobium + Trichoderma viride. However, P uptake was increased with the inoculation of RDF + Rhizobium + Bacillus megaterium. Whereas, quality attributes of soybean such as oil content, oil yield, protein content and protein yield was increased with the application of microbial culture such as RDF + Rhizobium + Trichoderma viride.
