Abstract: The experiment was undertaken the studies on bio-fertilizers on yield and quality traits of french bean (phaseolus vulgaris L.) cultivars. Different bio-fertilizers were taken Azotobactor, Phosphate solubilizing bacteria, Rhizobium, Azospirillum and Vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizae (VAM). Three varieties PDR-14(Uday), EC-400445 and IPR-98-3-1 were used for investigation. The results revealed that the application of V1B3 (PDR-14 (Uday) + Rhizobium) significantly days to first flowering, and days to 50 per cent flowering, number of pods/ plant, number of grains/ pod, green pod length(cm), green pod width(cm), green pod breadth (cm), single green pod weight, green pod yield/plant (g), green pod yield/plot (kg), green pod yield (q/ha), seed weight (g), moisture (%), total sugars (%), protein (%) and also the same trend in PDR-14 (V1) except green pod length in IPR-98-3-1. It is found that PDR-14 (Uday) performed better in respect of yield and quality traits in French bean under Lucknow condition.
