VARIATION OF PROXIMATE COMPOSITION IN GREEN GRAM (VIGNA RADIATA (L.) R. WILCZEK) SEEDLINGS AS EFFECTED BY TREATMENT WITH BACTERIAL COMPOST PREPARED FROM SUGARCANE LEAF WASTE

G.A. Asif Jamal, Mujeera Fathima

Abstract


Bacterial compost was prepared from the decomposed sugarcane leaf waste using bacteria isolated from cashew nut and groundnut processing areas. This compost was used to study its effect in bringing about variation in proximate composition of the seedlings of Vigna radiata (L.) R. Wilczek in comparison with vermicompost, Natural compost and Inorganic fertilizer. The different setups were irrigated with equal quantities of the respective compost solutions on alternate days. After 7 days the germinated seedlings were subjected to proximate analysis of Carbohydrates, Proteins, Lipids and Chlorophyll, to study the effect of different compost and Inorganic fertilizer. The treated seedlings showed a high value of proximate composition for Bacterial compost and Natural compost, when compared to other treatments. This shows that these components have a role to play in the growth enhancement of seedlings in these treatments.
