Biotechnical Approaches to Enhance the Growth and Biomass of Sapindus Trifoliatus Seedlings
Abstract: Biofertilizers play a significant and complex role in plant growth of forestry species, which have been proved in the present study. In the present investigation various biofertilizers were applied alone and in combination. The growth and biomass response of S. trifoliatus were enhanced due to application of biofertilizers. The study was conducted in green house of the institute. 06 months old seedlings of Sapindus trifoliatus were selected for study. Total 28 treatments were tried using biofertilizers alone and in combination. Vermicompost was found the most efficient in improving the plant growth, biomass and survival of seedlings followed by Azotobactor application. Vermicompost and azotobactor was found most efficient in improving organic matter and total nitrogen accumulation through nitrogen fixation. It secrets growth promoting hormones like Auxin, Gibbrellins, Cytokinins, Indole Acitic Acid as well as antibiotics, which suppress and control plant pathogens, which has resulted in increasing the growth of seedlings.
