Abstract:

The present study was conducted to the Influence of biofertilizers on plant growth and seed yield of Pea (Pisum sativum L.). Based on the mean performance the Treatment- 8 (100% RDF + Rhizobium 200 gm/ kg) was found best treatment for plant growth and seed yield. This obtained high in plant height (50.65cm), Number of branches per plant (13.75), Number of leaves per plant (33.10), days to 50% flowering (49.33), Number of pods per plant (16.00), days to maturity (81.00), Pod length (8.10cm), Number of seed per pod (6.45), 100 seed weight (seed index) (17.45gm), seed yield per plant (17.35gm), Nodules per plant (21.95). Thus, it indicates that the process of seed treatment by biofertilizers may be better option for seed growers to achieve higher seed yield and yield attributes in pea. Biofertilizers are one of the most important tools in Agriculture for highest plant growth and seed production. Biofertilizers are prepared from live cells of different microorganisms and applied to soil, seed to the availability of nutrients and to improve fertility status of soil. Biofertilizers were found to be superior with regards to plant growth, and yield characters over control.
