An experiment was conducted to study the influence of microbial sources of nutrients along with organic and inorganic sources on the vegetative growth parameters of strawberry cv. Chandler. The data observed at different days after transplanting (30, 45, 60, 75,90 and 105 days) clearly indicate that the application of integrated sources of nutrients significantly affect the vegetative growth of the plant. The maximum growth in terms of height of the plant (5.83 cm, 8.31 cm, 12.61 cm, 14.83 cm, 17.44 cm and 19.25 cm), number of leaves per plant (5.81, 10.27, 13.66, 16.86, 18.04 and 18.80), length of leaves (6.34cm, 6.96cm, 7.32 cm, 8.00 cm 8.32 cm and 8.80 cm) and width of leaves (5.16cm, 6.58cm, 7.86 cm, 8.93 cm, 10.20 cm and 10.94cm) were recorded in the treatment T12-Azotobactor (50%)+ Azospirillum (50%)+NPK (50%) + FYM at 30, 45, 60, 75, 90 and 105 DAT re spectively in each respective parameters which was statistically significant over control (T1) where recommended dose of fertilizer was applied.
