Abstract

The experiment was laid out in a split plot design with 10 treatments and replicated thrice.
Results revealed that growth and yield components of baby corn such as plant height, dry matter
production, number of cobs, cob yield improved due to the application of biofertilizers along
with inorganic inputs. Among the cropping systems, babycorn + vegetable cowpea (M2S2) recorded
the highest growth and yield components. This was followed by babycorn + dolichos bean (M2S3).
