Cite article:- Indrapriyadharshini S., Karthikeyan S. (2022). The Response of Vigna radiata to Various Sources of Fertilizers in Vellore District. Legume Research. 45(10): 1278-1282. doi: 10.18805/LR-4245.
In the current global scenario, farmers face a considerable challenge in maintaining a balance between sustainable agriculture and good yield. A field experiment was undertaken at Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), Vellore district to examine the performance of various sources fertilizers on Vigna radiata. A new combination of plant growth stimulating bacterial consortium was compared with exsting organic and inorganic fertilizer. The outcome of the study showed that the grain yield and root nodules production was significantly increased by the effect of microbial consortia with maintaining the soil pH. In the present study, we report the enhanced soil organic carbon (SOC) and flowering initiation by the application of farmyard manure (FYM), bio-fertilizer (Rhizobium) and panchagavya. Moreover inorganic fertilizer did not show any positive improvements for the present soil condition. The outcome of the study suggested the imperative role of organic and biofertilizer which improved the crop yield production than the other inorganic fertilizers.
