A field experiment was conducted during Kharif season 2014 at the Research farm of Soil Science Allahabad School of Agriculture, laid out in randomized block design on sandy loam soil, containing sand 62.71%, silt 23.10% and clay 14.19% (Inceptisols). It was observed that for post harvest soil properties in treatment N20P40K40+ FYM @ 10 t ha-1 and Rhizobium were improved significantly due to integrated use of inputs. Organic carbon- 0.75%, available nitrogen- 333.23 kg ha-1, phosphorus- 34.58 kg ha-1, potassium- 205.83 kg ha-1, pore space- 50.80 %, pH- 6.80 were found to be significant and bulk density- 1.07 Mgm-3, particle density- 2.62 Mgm-3, EC at 270 C- 0.24 dSm-1 were found to be non-significantly improved in this treatment.
