A field experiment was conducted for three consecutive years in four different locations to evaluate the effect of consortium of Rhizobium, PSB and potash mobilizing bacteria on growth and yield of mungbean. Among different inoculation treatments, seed inoculation with consortium of Rhizobium, PSB and potash mobilizing bacteria along with 75% per cent recommended nitrogen and phosphorus was found most effective as it recorded highest number of nodules (73.41 plant-1), number of pods (37.93 plant-1), grain yield (9.16 q ha-1) and thousand grain weight (38.0 g) and found statistically at par with the treatment of consortium + 100% recommended dose of nitrogen and phosphorus for all growth and yield attributing characters. The results indicated saving of 25% chemical nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizer for mungbean.
