The mung bean (Vigna radiata
) belongs to group of the legume family (Fabaceae). This family is a wide spread as it occupies the third largest family of flowering plants, with approximately 650 genera and nearly 20,000 species. The present study was to check the effect of liquid formulations of Rhizobium
inoculation on Soil microbial population dynamics at periodic intervals in soil, nitrogen and phosphorus uptake by mung bean, growth and yield of mung bean as influenced by application of liquid Rhizobium
. After considering all the parameters, inference could be drawn that Rhizobium
application enhance the growth leading to increase in yield of mung bean. It was observed that T3: S.T.L. liquid Rhizobium
@ 25 ml/ kg of seed each had higher arithmetic value for growth parameters including germination, plant height, number of branches, number of leaves, LAI, root nodules and yield parameters pods/ plant, 1000 seed weight ultimately yield/ ha. Other parameters including chemical and microbial parameters showed significant increase over the absolute control. Above investigation concluded that inoculation of liquid formulation of Rhizobium
enhanced growth as well as yield of mung bean. Population of Rhizobium
as influenced by inoculation of liquid formulations significantly was enhanced. Total N and P uptake by plant and grain sample was found to be significantly higher due microbial inoculations.
