Abstract:
The present study is design to investigate the effect of compost and microbial inoculants on salinity stress on cowpea plants. Three different salinity levels (0.25%, 0.45%, and 0.65%) were used alone, with compost and with microbial inoculants as treatments. Coconut coir composted with Trichoderma sp. used as composted material. Results showed that treatments with different salinity levels alone had more severe effects on physical and biochemical parameters of experimental plants as compare with compost and microbial inoculants. Organic amendments improved the growth of plants with salinity levels.
