A field experiment was carried out during Kharif season 2020 at SHUATS Model Organic Farm (SMOF), Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (UP) on sandy loam soil to investigate the impact of foliar spray of organic liquid manures and seed inoculation of biofertilizer on growth and yield of finger millet. The treatments consisted of Liquid organic manures viz., Jeevamrutha foliar spray at 500 l/ha, Panchagavya foliar spray at 3% and Vermiwash foliar sprayat 3% and biofertilizers viz., Azospirilllum (seed inoculation @25 g/kg), PSB (Seed inoculation @25 g/kg) and Azospirillum + PSB (Seed inoculation @25 g/kg) whose effect is observed on finger millet (MR-1). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with ten treatments replicated thrice. Application of Jeevamrutha FS 500 l/ha+Azospirillum+PSB recorded significantly higher plant height (73.90 cm), number of tillers/plant (7.39) and plant dry weight (15.42 g/plant) at harvest stage as compared to all the treatment combinations. The treatment with application of Jeevamrutha FS 500 l/ha+Azospirillum+PSB also recorded significantly maximum number of fingers/ear head (6.31), grain yield (2.82 t/ha) and straw yield (4.62 t/ha) among rest of the treatment combinations.
