Abstract: The field experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of biofertilizers and P levels on soil fertility, yield and nodulation in chickpea crop at Instructional Farm of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh, India during rabi season 2015-16. The experimental soil having silty loam in texture, pH (1:2.5) 8.24, electrical conductivity (EC) 0.34 dS m-1, organic carbon 3.4 g kg-1, available N 180, P 18.2 and K 226 kg ha-1. All treatments were randomly allocated and replicated three times in a randomized block design was adopted for the experimentation. On the basis of present investigation, it may be concluded that application of different organic manures (FYM, vermicompost, poultry manure) and biofirtilizers (Rhizobium, PSB) significantly increased the growth, yield and soil health parameters viz. Plant height, number of branches plant-1,dry matter accumulation plant-1.
