Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Rabi season 2017-18 at the research farm of soil science and Agricultural chemistry department, SHUATS, laid out in randomized block design on sandy loam soil, containing sand 57%, silt 28%, and clay 14% (Inceptisols). It was observed that for postharvest soil properties in treatment T8 – I2F2 (N80P40K40S20 and Vermicompost 6t ha-1) were improved significantly due to organic and inorganic use of inputs. Organic carbon 0.62%, available nitrogen 253.80 kg ha-1, phosphorus 23.50 kg ha-1, potassium 205.50 kg ha-1, Zinc 1.42 ppm, sulphur 9.30 ppm, pH 7.23 were found to be significant and EC at 0.24 dS m-1 were found to be non-significantly improved in this treatment.
