Abstract: A field experiment was carried out research field, JNKVV, Jabalpur (M.P.) during the kharif season of 2016 to find out the efficacy of Actinomycetes, Rhizobium and PGPR consortium inoculants on symbiotic traits, nodule leghemoglobin and yield of soybean in a Vertisol of Central India. The said experiment was the field testing part of research which was conducted during 2002-2007 to 2007-2012. The efficacy of two isolates of each microbial inoculants as mono-inoculation and their combinations as co-inoculation of Actinomycetes, Rhizobium and PGPR were tested along with fertilized uninoculated control (FUI) and unfertilized uninoculated control (UFUI) were also evaluated. Results revealed that the among microbial inoculants, the Actinomycetes + consortia of Rhizobium and PGPR (CRP) was found most effective in respect of symbiotic parameters including nodule number (30.8 and 30.0 nodules plant-1), nodule dry weight (42.1 and 61.7 mg/plant) at 35 and 55 DAS respectively, shoot and root dry weight (2.78 and 0.56 g plant-1) at 45 DAS respectively, leghemoglobin content (1.88 and 2.15 mg/g of fresh nodule) at 35 and 55 DAS respectively, followed by CRP nodule number (26.0 and 28.3 nodules plant-1), nodule dry weight (37.5 and 56.2 mg plant-1), shoot and root dry weight (2.52 and 0.53 g plant-1), leghemoglobin content (1.68 and 1.92 mg g-1 of fresh nodule) and also showed its positive effect in enhancing all the yield attributing parameters, seed and stover yields.
