Abstract

Soil + charcoal (1:3) carrier based and liquid cultures of Rhizobia were used to inoculate wheat seed cv. HD2329. The plants received 100 kg N in two equal spilts and 60kg P₂O₅ and 40kg K₂₀ ha⁻¹. Inoculation with rhizobia had little effect on grain yield of wheat. Significant increase in straw yield and N-uptake occurred due to inoculation. A comparison of results of a similar experiment conducted during 1983-84, showed that inoculation with the same strains of rhizobia and application 50 kg N ha⁻¹ as basal dressing, was more effective in increasing yield and N-uptake in wheat cv. HD2329. It appears reasonable to assume occurrence of nitrogen fixation by root nodule bacteria in rhizosphere of wheat.
