Bio-filmed Bio-fertilizers and Organic Manure Application for Reducing Chemical Fertilizer in Sustainable Okra production
Oke Kingsley Oyediran , Aseri Gajender Kumar and Jain Neelam

Abstract:
Background and Objective: The search for sustainable means of reducing deleterious effects of chemical fertilizers in crop productivity is a global concern. Thus, the present study was carried out from 2015-2017 to investigate the potentials of in vitro developed bio-film bio-fertilizers and organic manure for reducing chemical fertilizer in okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench) production at Tala village (Jaipur district), Rajasthan state, India. Materials and Methods: Treatments were prepared from organic manure (OMT), arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi-Azotobacter bio-filmed bio-fertilizers (BFT), bio-filmed bio-fertilizers+organic manure (OBT), 65% recommended rate chemical fertilizer (CHT) and an untreated (UT) control in three replicates on randomized block design layout. Results: The cumulative effect of OBT treatment produced the highest values for all the parameters examined. Followed by the BFT and OMT treatments which were similar. The CHT treatment was next and the untreated control (UT) treatment had the lowest values for all parameters analyzed. Conclusion: There is the possibility to customize combinations of bio-filmed bio-fertilizers and organic manure for optimizing economics of production by reducing chemical fertilizer application.
