Abstract

The present experiment was carried out during kharif 2017-18 with the objective to know the effect of biofertilizers on growth and yield parameters of brinjal cv. Azad B-3. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with ten treatments each replicated thrice. The treatments consisted of both biofertilizers, chemical fertilizers and different combinations of both along with control. The observations were recorded on growth and yield parameters like plant height, no. of primary branches per plant, no. of secondary branches per plant, fruit length, fruit width, total no. of fruits per plot and fruit yield/ha. From the investigation, it was found that the treatment T5 (Azospirillum +PSB + 75% N + Full P&K) recorded maximum plant height (96.23 cm), no. of primary branches (6.32), no. of secondary branches (11.27), fruit length (13.89 cm), fruit width (8.42 cm), total no. of fruits per plot (724.66) and yield (448.65 q/ha) and  proved as a best combination of biofertilizers along with inorganic fertilizer for the improvement of brinjal cultivation through organically. Where treatment T5 significantly enhances the growth and yield traits of brinjal, it also recorded maximum benefit per hectare (B:C ratio 1:3.50).

Keywords: Brinjal, biofertilizer, growth, yield
