Utilization of composted agricultural waste as organic fertilizer for the growth promotion of sunflower plants

Author(s): Rabia Badar and Shamim A. Qureshi
Abstract: The present study examined the effects of composted Wheat Bran (5 g/2 kg of soil/pot) on physical and biochemical parameters of sunflower plants after 30 days of germination. Results showed significant progress in physical and biochemical parameters of plants as compared to control plants. Wheat Bran composted with T. hamatum (JUF1) in combination with Rhizobium sp-I (JUR1) and Rhizobium sp-II (JUR2) were found more effective in improving the shoot and root lengths while Wheat Bran composted with Rhizobium sp-I (JUR1) promote significantly carbohydrate, crude protein and mineral content of sunflower plants. It shows that composted Wheat bran may boost the soil fertility by refining its organic content.
