The study was conducted to investigate the effect of organic manures and biofertilizers on the vegetative growth, fruit quality and leaf nutrient status of pomegranate. The treatments consisted of the application of vermicompost, Azotobacter, Azospirillum, phosphorous solubilising bacteria (PSB)and farm yard manure (FYM) in different doses and combinations along with a control in which only organic fertilizers were applied. Combined application of vermi compost (15kg/Plant) + Azospirillum@ 150 g/tree + PSB @150 g/tree resulted in maximum plant height, canopy spread, trunk girth, fruit weight, while maintaining yield at par with inorganic fertilizers treatment. Maximum leaf P and K contents were recorded in treatment consisting of vermicompost (15kg/ plant) + Azospirillum @ 100 g/tree + PSB @100 g/tree but maximum leaf N content was recorded under FYM (15 kg/ plant) + Azospirillum @ 150 g/tree + PSB @150 g/tree. Use of biofertilizers with organic manures was found to be a good approach for production of quality pomegranate fruits without compromising the yield.
