A field experiment was carried out during rabi 2018-19 and 2019-20 at Rajasthan College of Agriculture,
MPUAT, Udaipur to study the soil properties and microbial population after harvesting of cauliflower
(Brassica oleraccea L. var. Botrytis) cv. Pusa Snowball K-1 as influenced by organic manures and liquid
formulations. The 18 treatment combinations, comprising three types of organic manures and six types
of liquid formulations, were evaluated on cauliflower crop with three replications under split plot design.
In the organic manure treatment M3 (FYM 1/3rd + PROM 1/3rd + NC 1/3rd equivalent to 100% RDN) and
in liquid formulation L1 treatment (panchagavya @ 3% spray) were reported significantly higher in soil
organic carbon (0.72%), available nitrogen (244.4 kg/ha), available phosphorus (21.2 kg/ha), maximum
soil bacteria (66.2 x 106 cfu/g), fungi (27.3 x 104 cfu/g) and actinomycetes (35.7 x 104 cfu/g).
