The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design (RBD) with six treatments and replicated thrice Growth and yield significantly increased by the application of different nutrient sources. Application of Poultry manure @ 6 t ha-1 + Rhizobium @ 20g kg-1 seed + Phosphatica @ 20g kg-1 seed (T6) enhanced both the growth and yield of crop. Maximum number of pods plant-1 (67.73), seeds pod-1 (2.83), grain yield (1513 kg ha-1) and Harvest index(45.62 %) were observed with  Poultry manure @ 6 t ha-1 + Rhizobium @ 20g kg-1 seed + Phosphatica @ 20g kg-1 seed (T6).
