Abstract: Efficacy of native bioinoculants, viz. AM fungi and Azotobacter, separately as well as in combination was evaluated for enhancing biomass productivity of Morus alba, Populus deltoides, Psidium guajava and Leucaena leucocephala under different agroforestry models along with other plant species. The combination of all plant species tested was found to be favourable with respect to growth, yield and microbial population in soil. The combined inoculation of AM fungi and Azotobacter gave the best results. AM fungi were cultured on Zea mays, Trigonella foenum-graecum, Ricinus communis, Vigna radiata, Solanum melongena and Lycopersicon esculenum, wherein R. communis was found to be the best host plant.
