A field experiment was conducted in the farmer’s field at Somerhalli village, Hiriyurtaluk of Chitradurga district on pomegranate cv. Bhagwa during 2015-16 titled as Studies on integrated nutrient management in relation to growth and yield characters in Mrigbahar season. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with 9 treatment combinations, comprising of inorganic, organic and biofertilizers with 3 replications. Results revealed that application of 100% recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) along with vermicompost + poultry manure + Azospirillum + PSB + KSBT9 has recorded the maximum fresh weight of leaf (0.28 and 0.38 g), dry weight of leaf (0.17 and 0.27 g), leaf area (9.91 and 12.89 cm2), shoot length (35.22 and 43.33 cm) at 30 and 60 days after first Biofertilizer application respectively, and also recorded the maximum weight of fruit (292.61g), number of fruits per tree (61.22), yield per tree (17.93kg), yield per hectare (16.46 t/ha).
