Abstract: Field trial were conducted at three locations to find out the effect of different chemical seed dresser and bio-agent on seed germination, root rot incidence and yield of soybean and results revealed that in comparison with bio-agent (Pseudomonas fluorescens and Trichoderma viride) seed dressing with Carboxin 37.5% + Thiram 37.5% (combi product) @ 2g/kg seed recorded maximum seed germination (92.96%), least per cent incidence of root rot (1.01, 2.79 and 6.22%) at 15, 30 and 45 days after germination respectively. Significantly superior yield (1224 kg/ha) recorded in seed dressing with Carboxin 37.5% + Thiram 37.5% (combi product) which is at par with seed dressing with Carbendazim 25% + mancozeb 50% WS (combi product) @ 2g/kg seed. Higher yield ascribed due to increased seed germination, minimum root rot incidence.
