A study was conducted to study the effect of different levels of arka microbial consortium on seed germination, seedling growth parameters and survival percentage in Brinjal cv. Dommeru local at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Dr. Y.S.R. Horticultural University, West Godavari district, Andhra Pradesh, India. Arka microbial consortiums with different levels were tried. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design, with seven treatments and replicated thrice. Results showed that 6g Arka microbial consortium per 1kg Coco peat gave highest germination percentage (88.43%), least germination period (6days), more seed vigour (89.30%), more seedling height (13.59cm), more number of leaves per seedling (6.47),  more Leaf area (47.50, more root length (6.38cm), more Seedling fresh weight (3.40g), dry weight (0.64g), more Survival rate (97.45) and less days to transplant (26 days). The least values were recorded in control under west Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh conditions.

Keywords: Arka microbial consortium, Brinjal, Germination (%), Survival rate (%)
