Abstract
In organic production systems, production of sweet corn, which is used exclusively for human consumption, can be very important. In such systems, an important role has use of biofertilizers and different species of microorganisms. Investigations were carried out on the experimental field of the Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops, in the Department of Organic agriculture and biodiversity, in 2011, in order to determine whether different treatments with Azotobacter chroococcum and different concentrations of organic fertilizers Guana influence on the concentration of total sugar in the grain. Applied concentration of Azotobacter and foliar application of Guana did not affect the difference in grain moisture, however, significant differences were observed in the total sugar content. Declining concentrations of Azotobacter affected the almost linear decrease in sugar content, while simultaneously increasing the concentration of Guana led to an increase in the total sugar content in grain, mostly in combination with high concentrations of Azotobacter. On average, foliar application of Guana increased the total sugar content of 1.6%.
