Field experiment was conducted at Instructional Farm of Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur during kharif 2015 to assess the response of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill] to microbial inoculation and sulphur. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications and consisted treatments viz. microbial inoculation (Control, Rhizobium, Phosphate solubilizing bacteria, Rhizobium + Phosphate solubilizing bacteria) and four levels of sulphur (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg S ha-1). The results revealed that microbial inoculation and sulphur significantly increased the growth attributes viz., plant height, dry matter accumulation, LAI,  primary branches plant-1, number of pods plant-1 and yield attributes number seeds pod-1, seed index, grain and haulm yield over the control.

Key words:Microbial inoculation, Sulphur, Soybean, Growth, Yield
