NUTRITIONAL AND MICROBIAL ANALYTICAL STUDY OF VEDIC LIQUID ORGANIC MANURE CUM PESTICIDE KUNAPAJALA WITH DIFFERENT STORAGE TIME INTERVALAbstract
A study on nutritional and microbial analysis of Kunapajala with different storage interval was conducted in the Department of Soil Science & Agricultural Chemistry and Department of Plant Pathology, UBKV, Coochbehar – 736165, West Bengal during March 2019. The motive of this work was to estimate the physicochemical properties, macro, and micronutrient content, and various microbial load of Kunapajala with a different storage time interval. Kunapajala was rich in N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Fe, Zn, Cu & Mn and it had a significant beneficial microbial load of Fungi, Actinomycetes, Pseudomonas, solubilising phosphorus bacteria (PSB), Azotobacter, Azospirillum, Rhizobium and Trichoderma. Nutrient content and microbial population change significantly with time in Kunapajala. So, continuous foliar and soil application of Kunapajala from the beginning and up to 40 days after preparation was beneficial to get maximum utilization. It is recommended that Kunapajala can be used as an alternative against chemical fertilizers and pesticides to develop organic farming.
