Abstract: The present study intended to develop a microbial consortium which has good scope and wide adoptability for Gloriosa superba L. The plant growth promoting rhizobacterial (PGPR) isolates Azotobacter chroococcum, Bacillus megaterium, Pseudomonas fluorescens, were used. The inoculation increased the nitrogen uptake, phosphorous and potassium the increase was the most significant in T7 (consortium), which recorded nitrogen uptake of (204.50 mg plant-1), phosphorus uptake of (155.40 mg plant-1) and potassium uptake of (150.30mg plant-1) on atharvest.
