Author(s): B Kranti Kumar and Syed Ismail
Abstract: A Field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2014-15 on Research farm, Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth, Parbhani to enhance the biological properties of soil and economics of crop using different microbial isolates by using soybean as a test crop. The results emerged out indicated that the soil alkaline phosphatase and acid phosphatase enzyme activity was improved with RDF + Rhizobium + Bacillus megaterium after harvest of soybean. Whereas, biological properties are improved with the application of RDF along with inoculation of Rhizobium + Trichoderma viride after harvest of soybean. Economics (GMR, NMR and B:C) of soybean was found highest with Rhizobium and Trichoderma viride along with recommended dose of fertilizers.
