Abstract:

The investigation was conducted at department of plant biotechnology, University of Agricultural Sciences, GKVK, Bangalore, from Jan to May during Rabi season, 2015, on sandy loam soil, pH having 5.3 to 5.5 to study the effect of different concentrations of biofertilizers as sources of nutrients along with inorganic fertilizers in French bean under green house conditions with an objective to study growth and yield without degrading soil quality by using various nutrient compositions with varying concentrations. Experimental treatments comprised of (a) three levels of biofertilizer with different combinations and concentrations (9gm each) in five treatments. The experiment was laid out in different five pots randomized with three replications (Kumar et al., 2009) (5). The results indicate that the highest plant height (48.34 cm) was obtained in treatment T3 with each 9gm Rhizobium leguminosarum + 9 gm of phosphate solubilizing bacteria, the highest dry weight plant (22.20g), Pods per plant (10.00), Pods per cluster (3.00) and pod yield (71.06 g) Number of leaves per plant (28.83), number of cluster per plant (3.73), seeds per pod (7). Application of combination of 9 gm of Rhizobium leguminosarum + 9gm of phosphate solubilizing bacteria biofertilizers was proved to be the best possible combination.
