Impact of Nutrient and Bio-fertilizers on Soil Nutrient Status and Quality Attributes of Garlic (Allium sativum L.)

Om Prakash Jitarwal and M.R. Choudhary


An experiment was conducted during the year 2015-2016, at the Instructional Farm, Department of Horticulture, SKN, College of
Agriculture, Jobner for the study the impact of nutrient and bio-fertilizers on Soil Nutrient Status and Quality attributes of garlic.
The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with 16 treatment combinations, four phosphorous levels viz.
control, 25 kg P ha-1, 50 kg P ha-1 and 75 kg P ha-1 as first factor and four seed inoculation with bio-fertilizer as second factor viz.
control, PSB, VAM and PSB + VAM. The results of phosphorous levels revealed significantly higher soil nutrient status and quality
were recorded due to application of 75 kg P ha-1. However, application of 75 kg P ha-1 was statistically at par with 50 kg ha-1 for all
quality characters, Sulphur content (%), N content in bulb (%), P content in bulb (%), K content in bulb (%), Total soluble solids (%)
and P content in soil Among the bio-fertilizers, inoculation with PSB + VAM recorded higher values of soil nutrients and quality
characters of garlic.


  • Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is a plant with a major economic importance and usually recognized all over the world as a valuable spice for foods.
  • Study recommends that to obtain higher Soil Nutrient Status and Quality attributes of garlic crop under different agro-climatic conditions of Rajasthan, then it should be grown with application of 75 kg p ha-1 along with inoculation of PSB + VAM.
