Abstract :

ABSTRACT An experiment was conducted at Avinashilingam Institute for Home Science and Higher Education for Women, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu (India) for analyzing the effect of biocomposted corncob and coirpith on leghaemoglobin content in nodules of soybean (Glycine max) and moth bean (Vigna aconitifolia). The experiments consists of seven treatments viz., C- control, T1- compost 1 (Raw corncob composted by using Pleurotus sajor-caju (5t ha-1)), T2- compost 2 (Predigested raw corncob + Eudrilus eugeniae (5t ha-1)), T3- compost 3 (Raw corncob predigested by using Pleurotus sajor-caju and Eudrilus eugeniae (5t ha-1)), T4- compost 4 (Raw coirpith composted by using Pleurotus sajor-caju (5t ha-1)), T5- compost 5 (Predigested raw coirpith + Eudrilus eugeniae (5t ha-1)) and T6- compost 6 (Raw coirpith predigested by using Pleurotus sajor-caju and Eudrilus eugeniae (5t ha-1)). The results revealed that leghaemoglobin content was increased from 25 to 50 DAS and its goes down gradually up to 75 DAS. The treatment T6- compost 6 (Raw coirpith predigested by using Pleurotus sajor-caju and Eudrilus eugeniae (5t ha-1)) significantly increased leghaemoglobin content followed by T3 as compared to the control on 25 to 50 DAS. Hence biocomposted corncob and coirpith enhanced the leghaemoglobin content in the nodules of soybean. KEY WORDS: leghaemoglobin, C- Control, T- Treatment, Pleurotus sajor-caju, Eudrilus eugeniae, DAS- Days After Sowing
