A lab and pot experiment was conducted during 2017-2018 to study the evaluation and effect of microbial inoculants for production of growth hormones and organic formulations on growth of baby corn under greenhouse condition. The research was conducted at Department of Agricultural microbiology, UAS, GKVK, Bengaluru. Bioassay was conducted for growth hormone production of GA, IAA and cytokinin. Among all the microbial inoculants Pseudomonas fluorescens produces highest growth hormones than other microbial inoculants. There were 16 treatments comprising all possible combinations of microbial inoculants along with nitrogen sources were laid out in complete randomized block design with three replications Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus + Bacillus megaterium + Piriformospora indica + Pseudomonas fluorescens + Bacillus subtilis + Trichoderma harzianum + 50 per cent of vermicompost and jeevamrutha as a single, triple inoculation and also as multiple inoculation and different plant parameters was recorded. In all the parameters were significantly higher with multiple inoculation compare to triple, single inoculation and control.

Keywords: Growth hormones, Microbial and organic formulations and Baby corn (Zea mays L.)
