Effect of cultivars, nitrogen sources and soil types on response of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) to Azospirillum inoculation

Annals of Agricultural Research 18(3): 313-317
Effect of cultivars, nitrogen sources and soil types on response of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) to Azospirillum inoculation
In a greenhouse experiment sorghum PJ8K (local), SPV-351 (improved) and CSH-6 (hybrid) were seed inoculated with A. brasilense or not inoculated and were given 40 kg N/ha as urea, farmyard manure or leaves and shoots of Leucaena leucocephala. The response of CSH-6 to seed inoculation was studied on black soil, red sandy loam, or red loamy sand. Inoculation increased dry matter yield of CSH-6 and SPV-351 by 6.1 and 4.2%, respectively, but decreased yield of PJ8K.
