Abstract:

The biofertilizers are commonly called as microbial inoculants which are capable of mobilizing important nutritional elements in the soil from non-usable to usable form by the crop plants through their biological processes. The present investigation was carried out to study the application of soil organic amendments Azospirillum, Rhizobium, Phosphobacteria and Pseudomonas fluorescens significantly increased morphological, photosynthetic and biochemical parameters on tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) at all growth stages. It can be concluded that biofertilizer manure can be used for quick stabilization of soil fertility as well as biological activities, which is in turn help in nutrient availability during transition periods. Finally, it was observed that the plants treated with experimental biofertilizer Rhizobium showed excellent results in the morphological and biochemical parameters as compared to the other biofertilizers and also control.
