The soil micro-organisms are catalyst for making soil as live, without microorganism so many processes like transformation of nutrients and decomposition of wastes is inhibited. Their activities are much influenced by management practices. Microbial populations were determined in this study, and results showed that Intercropping of baby corn with clusterbean (M1) recorded significantly higher number of bacterial CFU (13.46 X 107). Significantly higher number of fungal colonies (24.22 X 103) were observed in sole baby corn and significantly higher actinomycetes population (65.00 X 104) in baby corn + okra system (M2). Among nitrogen management practices application of 50% RDN through goat manure + 50% RDN through poultry manure (S3) recorded significantly higher microbial population.
