To study the impact of reduced dose of chemical fertilizer and its combination with biofertilizer on morpho-physiological and biochemical traits of cowpea cultivar “Kashi Kanchan (VRCP-4)", field experiments were conducted during summer seasons at Udai Pratap Autonomous Collage, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India. The total seven treatments with control (T1 to T7) comprise different sources of organic and inorganic fertilizers, i.e. Phosphate solubilising bacteria (PSB), recommended dose of NPK and Azotobactor were endeavoured. From the evaluation of morphological and yield related attributes, the experimental findings revealed that highest plant height (cm), number of leaf/plant, nodes/plant, length of internode (cm), pod length (cm) were found noticeable in treatment NPK (100: 50:50kg/ha) + Azotobacter (5kg/ha) (T5), whereas number of pod/plant, number of seed/pod, average pod weight (g), TSS and yield/plant (kg) were observed in the treatment NPK (100: 50: 50kg/ha)+ PSB (7.5kg/ha). From the investigation of ascorbic acid, the highest content was observed in treatment of fertilizer combination NPK (100:50:50kg/ha) + Azotobacter (5kg/ha) + PSB (7.5kg/ha).

Keywords: Azotobacter, Bio-fertilizer, cowpea, NPK, PSB.
