The experiment was conducted at Research Area of Agronomy, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, Haryana (India) situated at 29°10' N latitude and 75° 46' E longitude at an elevation of 215.2 m above mean sea level during Kharif 2016 to notice the effect of biomix inoculation and chemical fertilizers on yield and yield attributes. Inoculation of bacteria has synergistic and additive effect on plant growth besides reducing the cost of cultivation. Higher number of ear head plant-1 was recorded with treatment F6 (2.76) and lowest in F1 (1.77). Significantly longer ear length (25.39 cm) as compared to rest of the treatments and it was at par with treatment F4 (25.14 cm). Perusal of data revealed that 1000 grain weight of pearlmillet was found to be statistically higher in treatment F6 as compared to rest of the treatments. Maximum grain yield was recorded in treatment F6 (30.79 q ha-1) which was at par with treatment F4 (29.65 q ha-1) and F5 (28.81 q ha-1). Pearlmillet hybrid H3 (28.64q ha-1) produced significantly higher grain yield than other two hybrids. This might be due to their better vegetative growth in terms of plant height, number of ear head and bolder seeds.
