ENHANCED VEGETATIVE GROWTH OF JUSTICIA ADHATODA (L.) NEES UNDER THE STIMULATORY EFFECTS OF BIOFERTILIZERS
Sanjay Bhashkarrao Thorat*
The experiments were carried out to deduce the effect of biofertilizers on sporophytic growth and development of Justicia adhatoda (L.) Nees. In the conducted experimentation Phosphobacterium, Azotobacter, Vermicompost and control set were run. Observations were noted for number of branches, leaf length and width, shoot length, number of leaves and leaf area. Results confirmed the influence of biofertilizers, i.e. maximum in vermicompost and least in control set. From this it can be concluded that integration of biofertilizers has significant role to play in growth and development of Justicia adhatoda (L.) Nees.
Keywords: Biofertilizers, Vermicompost, Justicia adhatoda (L.) Nees, nutrition.
