Abstract:
Results of an experiment were conducted during the Rabi seasons of 2019 -20 and 2020-21 at R. V. S. K. V. V., Gwalior with fifteen treatment combinations of 3 seedling age (6 weeks, 7 weeks and 8 weeks) in main plot and 5 bio-fertilizer (un-inoculated, Azotobecter, Azotobecter+ PSB, Consortia (Azotobecter+ PSB + KMB) and Arka Microbial Consortium (Azotobecter+ PSB + ZSB) in subplot were tested in split-plot design in onion crop (Cv. Agrifound Light Red) with 3 replications. Pooled data of two years revealed that the maximum value of growth and yield attributes parameters of onion was recorded with 7 weeks age of seedling, Highest pooled marketable bulb yield (331.7 q) was noted with 7th weeks old seedling age which was significantly higher to 6h and 8th weeks old seedling age. Bio-fertilizer applied treatments recorded significantly higher marketable bulb yield as compared to control. Maximum pooled marketable bulb yield (347.6 q) was recorded with Arka Microbial Consortium (Azotobecter + PSB + ZSB) which was significantly higher over rest of the treatments. Highest net income and B: C ratio were recorded under S2: 7 weeks and BF5: Arka Microbial Consortium treatments and as well as combination of both treatment.
