Effects of growing media with bioinoculants on quality seedlings production of Eucalyptus tereticornis in nursery conditions

Effect of coir pith and vermiculite based media inoculated with various bioinoculants PGPRs, PPFM, AM fungi along with vermicompost, farmyard manure, effluent compost, decomposed green manure, neem seed kernel cake, aegle seed cake etc., were critically examined at different mixing ratio as an integrated bio- nutrient management for the quality production of seedling of Eucalyptus tereticornis. It was demonstrated that some of the bioinoculant application could appreciably improve the germination behaviour (24 -100%) in our nursery experiments as the supplement of primary/micronutrients like protein, chlorophyll, Ca, N, Ph, Mg, K and organic carbon , and thus reducing the need for fertilizers. The inoculated seedlings shown better performance of biomass with reference to seedling survival, shoot length, collar diameter at 30- 60 days after application.
