Influence of Organic and Inorganic Inputs on Soil Physico-Chemical Properties of Jowar Field
Abstract: In present investigation a field experiment was conducted in Jowar (Rabi) field during 2010-2013, to study the effect of various liquid organic inputs and inorganic inputs on soil physico-chemical properties. Overall results shows in organic inputs applied field there is significantly minimum and maximum increase in soil properties like organic carbon (0.11 % to 0.34 %), phosphorus (6.62 kg/h to 15.16 kg/h), water holding capacity (3.3 % to 8.5 %) over inorganic inputs applied field. There is significantly decrease in pH (0.79 to 1.23) and Electrical conductivity (0.07 ms/cm to 0.36 ms/cm) of soil in organic field compared to inorganic field. The potassium content was higher in both fields. From above finding it is clear that application of organic inputs like farm yard manure, Beejamruth and Jeevamruth significantly improves soil nutrient properties which results in increase in fertility and productivity of soil for sustainable development.
