Nutrient Status in Relation to Rhizosphere Microflora of Mulberry Gardens in different Regions of Kashmir
Dr. Saima Khursheed (SKUAST - K)
Abstract: The study entitled Nutrient status in relation to rhizosphere microflora of mulberry gardens in different regions of Kashmir was performed to better understand the bacterial communities in mulberry growing soils/locations and their association with various chemical properties of soils. The chemical properties of mulberry soils evaluated in this study varied across various regions and showed a positive correlation with rhizosphere microflora. It was observed that mulberry soils differ in the diversity and density of microorganisms in relation to chemical properties. The higher abundance of microorganisms was found mostly in the Northern region which may be because of better nutrient availability, soil moisture and other climatic factors. Soil Organic carbon and Potassium was however, highest in the Southern region but deficient in other parameters.
