SV Dhutraj and RV Deshmukh
A field experiment was conducted during 2016-17 at banana Research Station, Nanded to study the effect of Soil application of bio-fertilizer on yield and quality of banana. Bio-fertilizers Viz. Trichoderma harzianum, Azospirillum lipoferum and Phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) were applied through soil at 25g per plant in split doses soil application of bio-fertilizer is applied with 100 percent recommended dose of fertilizer considering the effectiveness of soil application of bio-fertilizer along with 100 percent and 75 percent dose of recommended dose of fertilizer. Treatment T9 i.e. 100 % RDF + Trichoderma harzianum + Azospirillum +PSB @ 25gper plant recorded significantly maximum yield (114.20 Mt/ ha) Reducing sugar (11.37) non-reducing sugar (4.67) and total sugar (16.21).
