Effect of Rhizobium, vesicular arbuscular mycorrhiza and phosphorus on the growth and yield of lentil (Lens culinaris) and fieldpea (Pisum sativum)

Environment and Ecology 19(1): 40-42

Effect of Rhizobium, vesicular arbuscular mycorrhiza and phosphorus on the growth and yield of lentil (Lens culinaris) and fieldpea (Pisum sativum)

Lentil LL 147 and field pea PG 3 were treated with 20 and 40 kg P2O5/ha, respectively (T1), Rhizobium leguminosarum (T2), Glomus fasciculatum (T3), T2 + T3 (T4), T2 + 20 kg P2O5/ha (T5), T3 + 20 kg P2O,5/ha (T6), T4 + 20 kg P2O5/ha (T7) and control (untreated, T8) in a field experiment conducted in Punjab, India, during the rabi season of 1992-93. The number of pods per plant was higher in the T1, T5 and T7 treatments than in T8.

Irrigation with saline water significantly reduced the dry matter production and uptake of phosphorus in both pea and lentil crops. Between the two crops pea was found relatively more tolerant to a given level of salinity. Soil application of phos...

Drift of sulfonylurea and phenoxy herbicides from spring cereal fields to nearby spring pea and lentil crops was simulated by spraying pea and lentil with 2,4-D or the 2:1 commercial mixture of thifensulfuron and tribenuron at rates of 0, 0.33, 1,...

The gram-negative soil bacteria Rhizobium spp. infect and establish a nitrogen-fixing symbiosis with legume crops which involves the mutual exchange of diffusable signal molecules. In this study, Rhizobium leguminosarum containing a nodlacZ gene f...
