The present experiment entitled “Effect of bio-fertilizers with chemical fertilizers on the growth, yield, and quality of Cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis)” was conducted at Horticulture Research Farm of the Department of Applied Plant Science (Horticulture), Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, (A Central University), Vidya- Vihar, Rae Bareli Road, Lucknow (U.P), India during Rabi season of 2015-16. The soil of the experimental field is sandy loam and slightly alkaline in nature with a soil pH of 8.2. In the trial, different nutrients are applied such as Recommended Dose of Fertilizers (RDF), FYM, Azotobacter, Azospirillum, and Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (VAM) study the layout of the experimental field was laid down in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The observation of various character recorded revealed that the maximum height of the plant (57.793cm), number of leaves per plant (21.00), stem diameter (3.88cm), length of leaf (42.4cm), width of leaf (28..6cm), stem height (48.89cm), net curd yield (378.59g), curd with guard leaves (1349.86g), curd weight without guard leaves (929.22g), curd diameter(15.66cm), vitamin-c(93.21mg) and acidity (0.88) was found.
