Abstract:
In the present study, the plant growth promoting effect of compost derived from decomposed kitchen waste by microbial decomposers on plant growth parameters of crops viz. wheat, Chickpea, Safflower and cowpea discussed. Pseudomonas sp, T. viride 1, 2, 3 and T. harzianum were isolated from decomposed kitchen having high decomposing abililty which is used as decomposers. All the tested plant growth parameters viz. plant height, number of branches, root length, fresh weight and dry weight of crops were increased in compost treated plots. The maximum plant height was showed by T1 (41.86cm), of branches was showed by T1 (6.85) followed by T7 (6.83), root length was showed by T1 (15.27cm) followed by T5 (15.10cm), fresh weight was showed by T1 (13.00g) followed by T4 (12.88g), dry weight was showed by T1 (5.55g) followed by T4 (5.50g). The minimum plant height (29.56cm), number of branches (4.28), root length (11.22cm), fresh weight (10.00g) and dry weight (4.14g) was showed by T9.
