SINERGISTIC EFFECT OF RHIZOBILIM AND PSELTDOMONAS FLUORESCE:VS ON GROWTH AND YIELD OF CLUSTER BEAN (CIAMOPSIS TETRAGONOLOBA L.)C.K.PADNIAJA AND C. SEETHALAKSHNII
1 pot culture experiment was conducted to assess the combined effect of Rhizobium (seed encapsulation) and PseudomonvtzfluorLscens (soil and foliar application) on growth and yield parameters of cluster bean (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba L.). There were five treatments :T1 - Absolute control ; - Pseudomonas fluorescens (soil application) ; T3 - Rhizobium (seed , ncapsulation) ; T, - Rhizobium and Pseudomonas fluorteens ; T, - Pseuilomonias fluorescens as foliar spray. Pia it samples at various stages (30, 60, DAS) Were analyzed for biometric and yield parameters. It can be ded iced from the present findings that, the treatment T, (dual inoculation of Psewiomonas fluorescens and Rh'zobium), not only influenced the biometric parameters like, plant height from 235 cm to 65.6 an, plant fresh and dry weight from 0.97 g to 6.63 g and 0.3 g to 0.4 g and root volume from 0.67 cumuli. to 1.6 cu.mm. but also significantly enhanced other yield parameters like number of pods per plant 5.33, pod weight per plant 133 g and single fruit weight 1.9 g compared to other treatments and an absolute control.
