Abstract:
Adoptions of intensive agriculture activities in farming systems are responsible for declining the all soil nutrient microbial biomass carbon and other status. Composting using the crop residues could be the most viable practice to improve soil nutritional status and the rhizosphere microbial biomass carbon. Therefore the present research work was conducted at Dr. PDKV, Akola with the aim to study the dynamics of microbial biomass carbon and Co2 evolution using six treatments including different farm crop residues. The prepared compost from the crop residues was evaluated for microbial biomass carbon and Co2 evolution. The results showed that composition of T6 (25% Wheat Straw + 25% Shredded cotton stalk + 25% Glyricidia Leaf + 25% sorghum stubbles) was found superior over the others in improving Co2 evolution and microbial biomass carbon.
