Abstract: Field experiment was laid out at the experimental farm of Department of Soil Science and Water Management, Dr. Y S Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan (HP) in two consecutive years (2015 and 2016) to evaluate effect of integrated nutrient management (INM) on yield of cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var botrytis L.) and soil fertility. Studies employed integrated use of organic and inorganic fertilizers with PGPR strains (Bacillus spp.). The nine treatments, T1 -Absolute control, T2 -70% NPKM + 30% N through FYM and VC (50:50), T3 -80% NPKM + 20% N through FYM and VC (50:50), T4 -90% NPKM + 10% N through FYM and VC (50:50), T5 -100% NPK + FYM, T6 -100% NPK + Vermicompost, T7 -110% NPKM (50:50 of FYM and VC as per N content), T8 -120% NPKM (50:50 of FYM and VC as per N content), T9 -130% NPKM (50:50 of FYM and VC as per N content). PGPR applied to all treatments except T1, T5 and T6. Experimental set up was laid down in a randomized block design (RBD) with three replicates. Results revealed that treatment T3 -80% NPKM + 30% N through FYM and VC (50:50) with PGPR, significantly increased the cauliflower yield by 22.91% as compared to treatment T5 -100% NPK + FYM (RDF). Soil status was assessed after harvest and concentration of nutrients increased in soil with the combined use of fertilizers and PGPR.
