Effect of phosphate solubilizing bacteria and different phosphatic fertilizer on nutrient content of rice.
A pot culture experiment was conducted in the Department of Agricultural Chemistry, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh with acidic soil of the Madhupur upzilla under Tangail district to evaluate the effect of three phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) with addition of three different phosphatic fertilizers (triple superphosphate, single superphosphate and Moroccan rock phosphate) at recommended dose on nutrients content of transplant aus rice (Oryza sativa L.) cv. BR26. PSB significantly increased the N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe and Mn content in rice grains and while in straw the content of N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Mn and Cu increased. Application of different P fertilizer significantly increased all the nutrients content except Fe in grains and K, Fe, & Zn in straw studied. P fertilizers accentuated the performance of PSB in increasing the nutrient content of rice.
