Biofertilizers are commonly called microbial inoculants which are capable of mobilizing important nutritional elements in the soil
from non-usable to usable form by the crop plants through their biological processes. . Biofertilizers increases the soil fertility
naturally and does not affect the soil like chemical fertilizers. Hence to increase the productivity of the soil the use of biofertilizer
is necessary. The comparative effect of biofertilizers Rhizobium japonicum and Azotobacter spp on the growth and yield of Black
gram vigna mungo (L.hepper) was studied. The seeds of mungbean were treated with biofertilizer and their result was recorded
after 45 days. This proves that plants treated with Rhizobium japonicum and Azotobacter spp showed excellent results in the
morphological as well as biochemical parameters result as compared to controlled (untreated) plants. The Government of India
has been trying to promote the use of Biofertilizer by providing incentives to the farmer. These inputs have a multiple beneficial
impacts on the soil.
