Title: Effect of Phosphorus and Phosphate Solubilizing Micro organism on the Quality of Two Maize (Zea mays L.) Varieties
Author: Saad, Wafa Atif Abdalrhman babiker
Abstract: Two maize (Zea mays) varieties namely, (Hudibia and mugtama) were collected from afield experiment at department of agronomy, Faculty of agriculture, University of Khartoum and used in this study to evaluate the effect of phosphorus fertilizer and phosphorous solubulizing microorganism on maize forage quality. The phosphorous soulubilizing microorganism included, bacteria (bacillus.subtilis), fungi(Arbuscular mycorrhiza) and the combination. The evaluation was done by determining CP, EE, Ash, NDF, ADF, ADL, and dry matter degradability. The proximate analysis components showed that there were highly significant differences (P<0.01) among parameters (CP, EE, Ash, NDF, ADF and ADL). The highest value for CP 14.01% was recorded in the variety Mugtama when fertilized with bacteria, the highest value for Hudibia 14.04% when fertilized by bacteria with fungi. The value for NDF ranged from 75.00% to 48.22% with the highest value recorded in bacterial fertilization in Mugtama variety. On the other hand, the value for ADF ranged between 60.93%and 36.15% with the highest value recorded when phosphorus fertilizer was used in Hudibia variety. Moreover, the highest value for Ash 19.45% was secured by the variety Mugtama with bacterial fertilization, the lowest value 5.95% was obtained by using the combination of bacteria with fungi fertilizer in Mugtama variety. The results of dry matter degradability revealed that highly significant difference (P<0.01) was found between parameters. For the readily degradable fraction (a) and slowly degradable fraction (b), Hudibia variety with phosphorous fertilization secured the highest value, 36.10% , 70.53%, respectively. For the effective degradability (ED), phosphorus fertilization in Hudibia secured the highest value at 2%, 5% and 8% rate., It could be concluded that Maize Hudibia had a better performance than Mugtama due to its high content of CP and low content of ADF and ADL,this indicate that phosphoous and phosphorus solubilizing microorganism contributed significantly in improving the quality of maize forage
