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

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

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.
