Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted at Research Farm, MPUAT, Udaipur during 2019-2020 on integrated nutrient management with maize. Eleven different treatments having inorganic, biofertilizer and organic nutrients sources in various combinations were tested to determine the effect of integrated nutrient management on soil physical and chemical properties as compared to sole inorganic nutrient application. The experimental was conducted in randomized completely block design with three replications. Application of compost lowered down the soil bulk density and slightly overcame the problem of salinity by reducing electrical conductivity and pH as compared to initial value, control and sole fertilizer application. A considerable increase in the values of cation exchange capacity, water holding capacity and organic carbon were also recorded in integrated nutrient management practices indicating their soil health advantage as compared to sole fertilizer use. Seed treatment with biofertilizer and foliar Zn spay did not affected the soil parameters significantly. In conclusion, the organic (5t ha-1 Phospo compost) and inorganic (75% NPK) fertilizer (with or without biofertilizer and Zn) had more favourable soil Physio chemical environment.
