Alleviation of saline salt stress through pre-sowing biofertilizer seed treatment on crop growth and seed yield in green gram CV ADT3

Author(s):

Kamaraj A and S Padmavathi

Abstract:
A field trial was conducted to study the influence of presowing biofertilizer seed treatment using various bio-fertilizers on crop growth and seed yield parameters in green gram under saline stress condition. Freshly harvested, cleaned and graded seeds of green gram cv. ADT3 was imposed with the following seed treatments viz., T0 – Control (Untreated dry seed), T1 – Rhizobium @ 600 gm/ha, T2 – Phosphate solubilizing bacteria @ 600 gm/ha, T3 – VAM @ 600 gm/ha, T4 – T1 + T2, T5 – T1 + T3, T6 – T2 + T3, T7 – T1 + T2+ T3. From the results, it was concluded that seed treated with triple inoculation of biofertilizer such as rhizobium, phosphate solubilizing bacteria and VAM @ 600 gm/ha recorded the higher values for crop growth and seed yield parameters under saline stress condition
