	%X The present work was conducted to find out the effect
of biofertilizer formulated with four species of bacteria (two species
of Azotobacter and two species of Lysobacter) and zinc sulphate.
Field experiments with mustard plant were conducted to study the
effectiveness of soil application of zinc sulphate and biofertilizer at
0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 days after sowing. Plant height and condition of
plant was found to be increased significantly using a mixture of
biofertilizer and zinc sulphate than other treatments after 40 days
sowing. Three treatments were also used in this field experiment such
as bacteria only, zinc sulphate only and mixture of biofertilizer and
zinc sulphate. The treatment using a mixture of zinc sulphate and
biofertilizer had the best yield (4688.008 kg/ha) within 50 days of
sowing and performed better than other treatments. Field experiment
using zinc sulphate only was second best yield (3380.75Kg/ha) and
biofertilizer only treatment gave (2639.04kg/ha).
