The Integration of Microbial Inoculation and Organic Fertilization to Improve the Productivity of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in New Land
Journal of Advanced Laboratory Research in Biology
This study was conducted to investigate the integration between the microbial inoculation and organic fertilization to improve the wheat productivity. Therefore, two wheat varieties (Misr-1 and Seds-12) were tested under three rates (8, 10 and 12 tons/fed) of supported compost and various microbial inoculation treatments during of 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 seasons. The main obtained results revealed that the Misr-1 wheat variety recorded significant increases in yield and its components except
... omponents except average of grains number/spike during the two seasons. Moreover, the interaction among three experiment factors showed that Misr-1 wheat variety, 10 ton/fed of supported compost and microbial inoculation by Trichoderma + Bacillus subtilis gave the greatest values for number of spike/m2, spike weight, average grain weight per spike, 1000-grain weight, biological yield, total yield/fed and protein content. However, highest number of grains per spike were recorded with Seds-12 wheat variety and 10 tons/fed of supported compost + inoculated by Trichoderma + Bacillus subtilis.
