The use of bio fertilizers is important for sustainable agriculture and the use of nodule bacteria, p-solubilizing bacteria, K-mobilizing bacteria and PGPR is an appropriate way to enhance germination percentage, plant growth and yield. This study tested the effects of a bacterial consortia (Bio-Release KONCERT) containing Rhizobium sp, Bradyrhizobium sp, Bacillus sp. and Pseudomonas sp. for the combined effect on Soybean crop. Experiment designed for seed treatment of soybean during kharif 2022-2023, to check the efficacy of consortia product at different doses (5, 10, 15, and 20 ml/kg of seeds) with RDF, local strain as check and control for comparing the data. Seed treatment observed uniform in all the treated seeds with different range of doses. Treating seeds with Bio-release KONCERT @ 20 ml kg-1 of seeds was found superior in enhancing the soybean growth parameters, soil biological activity in terms of soil enzymes, physiological parameters and yield attributes. This is found to be at par with Bio-release KONCERT @ 15 ml kg-1 of seeds and Bio-release KONCERT @ 10 ml kg-1 seeds. Compared with the non-inoculated seeds, application of Bio-release KONCERT observed superior results in all concentrations. This bio fertilizer which significantly promoted plant growth, nodulation, nitrogen fixation, nutrient uptakes, and seed yield in soybean. Use of bio fertilizers can be reducing the application of chemical fertilizer in soybean production.
