Biochar Application - A Strategy to Sustain Soil Microflora in Chillies (Capsicum frutescens L.)
Dr. Dande Swapna Sree
Abstract: Soil is the most important natural resource with abundant variety of life. Growing population developmental progress, use of chemical pesticides have detrimental effects on soil microflora which play significant role in crop productivity. Biochar application is an effective way to arrest the worsening of soil’s biological health. Biochar amendment can alter soil’s physico-chemical-biological properties. The objectives of this study are to determine the effect of chemical pesticide and biochar on the soil microfloral population in soil in chillies field. On application of biochar, the harmful effect of chemical pesticide on the soil microflora in the studied soil decreased significantly, the adsorption property of biochar is directly correlated with the increase in number of useful soil microflora. However, this enhanced the soil fertility and crop productivity.
