In a field experiment conducted at the Department of Agronomy, Dev Bhoomi Uttarakhand University in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, researchers aimed to understand how different combinations of inorganic fertilizers and biofertilizers affected the nutritional quality and organic matter status of wheat crops. The experiment included nine treatments, with one serving as a control and another consisting of 100% inorganic treatment. These treatments were tested using seven different combinations of inorganic, organic, and biofertilizers. Wheat was sown in December 2022 and harvested in April 2023. The sandy loam soil at the experimental site had medium levels of organic carbon and available total nitrogen but low levels of available total phosphorus and available total potassium, with a slightly acidic pH. Among the treatments, T7 (100% RDF+PSB+VC) demonstrated the highest growth parameters and better yield components compared to other treatments. However, it is important to conduct further investigations and validate the findings in at least one more season before making recommendations to the farming community.
