The study was conducted to determine whether short-term incorporation of organic manures and biofertilizers influence biochemical and microbial variables reflecting soil quality. For the study, soils were collected from a field experiment conducted on turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) involving organic nutrient management (ONM), chemical nutrient management (CNM)(More)
Studies on soil quality of mangrove forests would be of immense use in minimizing soil degradation and in adopting strategies for soil management at degraded sites. Among the various parameters of soil quality, biological and biochemical soil properties are very sensitive to environmental stress and provide rapid and accurate estimates on changes in quality(More)
An efficient and improved method for in vitro propagation of mature tree of Dalbergia sissoo, an ecologically and commercially important timber yielding species, has been developed through axillary shoot proliferation. Bud breaking occurred from nodal shoot segments derived from rejuvenated shoots produced during early spring from a 20–25-year-old lopped(More)
For this study, plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) were isolated from soils under ginger and shortlisted based on their nutrient mobilization traits. The promising PGPR (Burkholderia cepacia, Klebsiella sp., Serratia marcescens, and Enterobacter sp.) were either applied alone or in combination with varying rates of NPK fertilizers to determine(More)
