Abstract:
An experiment was conducted on Effect of soil and foliar application of compost tea on growth characters, quality and nutrient content of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrillcrop was undertaken at Organic Farm, RCA, Udaipur to get knowledge on influential effects of soil and foliar application of compost tea on the growth characters, quality and economics of soybean under organic cultivation. Soybean plants were planted in factorial RBD with three replications during the Kharif season 2019 using RKS-24 variety of soybean with 30 cm row to row and 10 cm plant to plant distance. Treatments applied in soil at the time of sowing were control, 500, 750, 1000 and 1250 lit ha-1 compost tea, respectively and treatments applied as foliar spray at branching and pre flowering stage were control, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% compost tea. Compost tea was prepared by steeping 1part compost in 20 parts of water for about 14 days. Increasing dose of compost tea in soil as well as on foliage simultaneously increase all studied parameters i.e, growth parameters, quality characters and nutrient content of soybean. The best results obtained with application of 1250 lit ha-1 + 100% compost tea followed by 1000 lit ha-1 + 75% compost tea. Obtained results described the positive effects of compost tea on growth, quality and nutrient status under soybean cultivation.
