The impact of organic manures along with biofertilizers as a substitute to chemical fertilizers for garden bean variety ‘Konkan Bushan’ was studied at Olericulture unit, Department of Horticulture, Faculty of Agriculture, Annamalai University during 2003-2005. Among the treatments tested inoculation of Rhizobium and vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizae (VAM) along with vermicompost and vermiwash yielded better than uninoculated and controlled treatments. As a result of increased nutrient uptake, nodulation and biological nitrogen fixation of Rhizobium, colonization of VAM and supplementation of nutrients through vermiwash and vermicompost derived from vegetable waste was found to be superior. The treatment supplied with Rhizobium and VAM along with flower waste vermicompost and spraying of vermiwash registered highest protein content. The treatment which received with pressmud based vermicompost, biofertilizers and vermiwash recorded highest fibre content. These results indicate that the garden bean being responds very well for inoculation of Rhizobium, VAM, and vermicompost and its wash for providing all necessary nutrients in available form.
