A field experiment was conducted on medium black calcareous clayey soil at Junagadh (Gujarat) during rabiseason of 2017-18 to study the effect of integration of chemical fertilizers, enriched compost and biofertilizers on growth and yield of coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.). The experimental results revealed that significantly higher values of growth parameters viz., plant height, number of branches per plant, and dry matter production, and yield attributes viz., number of umbels per plant, number of umbellates per umbel, number of seeds per umbellate, and test weight along with higher stover yield (1688 kg/ha) were recorded with application ofenriched compost + recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) + vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizae (VAM). Whereas, significantly higher seed yield (14.93 q/ha), nutrient uptake by plant, available N, P, K in soil after harvest along with higher net return (₹ 69434/ha) and B:C ratio (2.81) were realized with the application of RDF + VAM + Azotobacter+ phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) + potash mobilizing bacteria (KMB).Based on the results, it could be concluded that higher production and net returns from coriander can be obtained by the application of RDF (60-60-40 N-P2O5-K2O kg/ha) + soil application of Azotobacter + PSB + KMB each @ 3 L/ha + VAM @ 0.25 kg/ha.

Keywords: Coriander, Azotobacter, phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB), potash solubilizing bacteria
