A field experiment was conducted during Kharif season of2020 at SHUATS Model Organic Farm (SMOF), Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (UP) on sandy loam soil to investigate the influence of bio fertilizers and organic manures on growth and yield of finger millet. The treatment consisted of seed treatment with biofertilizers viz., Azospirillum (seed inoculation @25 g/kg), PSB (Seed inoculation @25 g/kg) and Azospirillum + PSB (Seed inoculation @25 g/kg) and application of organic sources viz., FYM (10t/ha), Poultry manure (2t/ha) and Sheep manure(2t/ha) effect were observed on finger millet (MR-1). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with ten treatments replicated thrice. Study revealed that with application of Poultry manure (2t/ha) +Azospirillum+PSB(Seed inoculation @25g/kg)recorded significantly higher plant height (94.99 cm), number of tillers/plant (6.55) and maximum plant dry weight (23.45 g) at harvest stage as compared to other treatment combinations. The treatment with application of Poultry manure (2t/ha)+Azospirillum+ PSB (Seed inoculation @25g/kg) also recorded significantly higher number of fingers/ear head (5.22), grain yield (3.23 t/ha) and stover yield (5.58 t/ha) as compared to all the treatment combinations.
