Abstract: For improving the effectiveness of low-grade rock phosphate, a granular formulation was developed by immobilizing phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) impregnated rock phosphate in calcium alginate. This process ensured requisite standards of PSB viability in rock phosphate. The formulation was compared with powdered soil and seed formulations for its efficacy in soybean; maximum weight of nodule, dry matter and grain yield, N and P uptake of shoot and grain were recorded with granular preparation. The granular formulation can directly be applied in soil and is environmentally safe.
