A field experiment was conducted to ameliorate the quality of spent mushroom substrate by enriching it with biofertilizers like Azotobacter, PSB and KMB and its beneficial effect on growth and yield of radish crop. The treatment (T4) of SMS + consortium of AZT + PSB + KMB recorded significantly maximum values in the number of leaves (25.73), plant height (45.20 cm), root length (42.35 cm), root diameter (4.24 cm), fresh weight of whole plant (375.41 g), fresh weight of root (288.11 g), fresh weight of leaves (87.07 g), dry matter weight of plant (52.36 g) and yield of radish (32.48 t/ha) crop. The treatment T4 was significantly superior over other treatments in terms of growth and yield followed by treatment T5 – FYM + consortium of AZT + PSB + KMB.
