Response of microbial consortium to leaf phenotype of acid lime


Debashish Hota, Vijay Kumar, IP Singh

Citrus is an important crop of world and acid lime hold third position after sweet orange and mandarin. All the citrus crop response to biofertilizers treatments very well. The present study was carried out in ICAR-Central Citrus Research Institute, Nagpur to evaluate different microbial fortification treatments to the rhizosphere of acid lime. Treatments involved rhizosphere soil of acid lime and Nagpur mandarin, microbial consortium (Bacillus pseudomycoides Nakamura, Acinetobacter radioresistens Nishimura, Micrococcus yunnanensis Cohn, Aspergillus flavus Link and Paenibacillus alvei Cheshire and Cheyne) and freshly prepared vermicompost (nitrogen equivalent basis to RDF) in various combinations. Eight treatments with three replications were set up with Randomized block design. Results revealed that equivalent ratio of RDF in vermicompost form along with microbial consortium significantly increased the leaf length and width. Which shows its ability to photosynthesize more food and ultimately more yield.
