Effect of sulphur and Bradyrhizobium japonicum on the growth and yield of Soybean
- 1, ,
A pot culture experiment was conducted in clay loam soil to study the effect of Sulphur (S) and Rhizobium inoculation on nodulation, nitrogenase activity and yield of soybean C01. The treatments consisted of levels of S viz. 0, 7.5,15,30 kg ha-1in the presence and absence of exogenous inoculation of Rhizobium. The results revealed that with increasing levels of S, there was gradual increase in nodulation, nitrogenase activity and seed yield and maximum was found with 30kg ha-1 . Rhizobium inoculation irrespective of S levels enhanced BNF over uninoculated control, and thus there was increase in the seed yield of soybean by 22 per cent.
