Red gram or pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan L.) is one of the most important pulse crop of India contributing about 18 to 20% of total production of Indian pulses. In India, Maharashtra is a major red gram growing state with 29.5% area followed by U.P. (18%), Karnataka (10.8%), M.P. (10.06%), Gujrat (9.95%) and A.P. (9.01%). In India, its productivity is very low (700 kg/ha) as compared to other countries. Hence, a field bio-efficacy study was undertaken by spraying of Taba® (Gibberellic acid 0.001%/L) @ 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 ml/L at 60,90 and 120 DAS along with RDF at Agril. Research Station, Bijapur, UAS, Dharwad. Results indicated that application of Taba® @ 1 to 2 ml/L at 60, 90 and 120 DAS along with RDF significantly increases no. of branches/plant, no of pods/plant, weight of 10 pods, 100 seed weight and yield by 20 to 55% Similarly, spraying of Taba® along with RDF did not show any phototoxic effect on red gram crop.

Efficacy of 'Spida' a natural herbal extract blended with microbial metabolites was tested for two seasons against mites (Tetranychus neocaledonicus) and jassids (Amrasca biguttula biguttula) at concentrations of 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 ml/L. in field conditions at MPKV, Rahuri (Dist. Ahmednagar). All the insecticide treatments evaluated were found significantly superior over untreated check for the control of mites and jassids. Two sprays of 'Spida' @ 1 to 2 ml/L. were found highly effective in reducing mite and jassid intensity and resulted in highest seed yield as compared to recommended insecticide 'Quinolphos'. There was no symptoms of any abnormality, phototoxic effect found on any part of the plant and natural enemies and found compatible with insecticide, fungicide and fertilizer. 'Spida' being natural and certified for organic production is free from any fear of residues and has a 0 PHI. Source

Field experiments were conducted during summer and kharif seasons of 2011 to study the bio-efficacy of Milastin K, a formulation containing Bacillus subtilis KTBS 1015, for the control of powdery mildew and leaf spot diseases of Okra. Three sprays of Milastin K @ 1 to 2 ml/l could effectively control powdery mildew and leaf spot diseases in Okra and increased yield up to 16%. There was no adverse effect on natural enemies and no phytotoxic effect of Milastin K on leaves when sprayed at a dose up to 2.0 ml/l These results suggest the precision farming by minimizing phytotoxic effects and maximizing the value of organic farming.

A field bio-efficacy study of Vitormone (Azotobacter chroococcum) was undertaken at 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 ml/L concentrations at the Main Agricultural Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad in deep black soil. Vitormone is a foliar liquid bio-fertilizer which has boosting effect on crop growth. The result revealed that the plant received standard NPK dose along with 1.0 ml and 2.0 ml/L Vitormone at three different intervals i.e. 15,30, and 45 days after sowing significantly increased the yield by 23.59% and 30.75% respectively over NPK dose. Similarly, foliar nitrogen nutrition by Azotobacter can reduce 25% nitrogen dose and increase yield by 13.47 to 15.83%. There was no any phototoxic effect on any part of the plant and found compatible with fungicide, insecticide and PGPR (GA) and is free from any residue. Source

Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) is one of the important vegetable crop in India and world which is grown throughout the year in the country. Productivity of tomato in India is very low as compared to the world average of 32.8 T/ha. Among all the measures to increase the productivity level, plant nutrition is the most important. Hence, a field bio-efficacy study of Vitormone (Azotobacter chroococcum) was undertaken at 0.5,1.0 and 2.0 ml/1 along with 100% RDF and 75% N at College of Agriculture, Pune (MPKV, Rahuri) for two years. The results obtained revealed that spraying of Vitormone @ 1.0 and 2.0 ml/L alongwith recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) at 30, 60, 90 DAT significantly increase plant height, no. of branches/plant, days to flowering and maturity, no. of fruits/plant, 100 fruit weight and yield by 51.03% and 55.66% respectively-over control and 9.81% and 12.80% over RDF. Likewise, spraying of Vitormone @ 2.0 ml/L did not show any phototoxic effect on tomato crop. Source
