Abstract: A field experiment was conducted in 2014-15 and 2015-16 in rabi seasons at agricultural research farm of B.H.U. to study the effect of different strain of potassium solubilising bacterias and fungi in combination with various fertility levels on the microbial status and their corresponding impact on soil health. The trial consisting of Agrobacterium, Flavobacterium, Rhizobium and fungal strain of Trichoderma and four fertility levels was laid out in a split plot design with 4 replication by keeping fertility levels in the main plot and strains in the subplot. Significantly higher microbial population was recorded by the use of different microbes. Bacteria (141.12 x 10-6), actinomycetes (53.25 x 10-5) and fungal (45.5 x 10-4) population of cfu g-1 of soil were found to be the higher with 100% NP+75%K + Agrobacterium sp. and it remained at par with 100%NPK could improve and enrich the fertility status and health of the soil thereby reducing the harmful effect of chemicals.
