Abstract

Foliar spraying of microbial consortia at 1.5 ml concentration recorded 14.0 and 15.4 per cent increased plant height and plant dry weight of tomato, respectively, over the control. In case of yield parameters, the 1.5 ml/lit concentration of microbial consortia increased the number of fruits and fruit weight by 14.2 and 11.1 per cent, respectively, than the control about 9.9 per cent increase over control in fruit yield of tomato was recorded in microbial consortia treated plants.
