culture experiment was carried out to evaluate the influence of different
combinations of microbial inoculants (VAM + AZO + PSB) on soil
phosphatase activity andnutrients (N, P, K, Cu, Zn, Fe, Cu & Mn) of
Steviarebaudia plant rhizosphere on 20th, 40th and 60th day. The study revealed
that the combined application of microbial inoculants onsoil Alkaline and Acid
phosphatase activity has been found maximum at 60th day in triple inoculated
plants than dual inoculated and control. The results also showed that the soil
macronutrients (N, P & K) and micronutrients (Zn, Fe, Cu & Mn)
have been found to be maximum at 40th day and 60th day respectively in triple
inoculated plants than dual inoculated and control.
Current water resources management practices in most developing countries result in unnecessarily high economic and environmental costs. The magnitude and consequences of such costs have spurred the emergence of a global consensus on principles for improving water resource management. India will face an acute scarcity of water by 2025, more than most nations in the developing world. There is compelling evidence that improved water resources policies can have major impacts. In a number of cases in developed and developing countries pricing and tariff combined with regulations have produced savings of 20% to 30% and more. Improving water management will require that developing countries address the major constraints that currently undermine the allocation and efficient use of their water resources. Experiences in both developing and developed countries, as presented in this article, showed that improved policies for conservation and reallocation can have major benefits. The concerned authorities should look for various alternatives such as rainwater harvesting, recycling of wastewater, reducing un-accounted water and other options. Rainwater harvesting should be made compulsory; wastewater reuse has to be made with dual water supply system for new layouts. As the suburbs in the city are increasing day by day, rainwater harvesting would be able to serve the city for much longer time.
