The effect of cyanobacterial inoculants, with or without chemical fertilizers was studied on the growth and biomass of paddy crop Oryza sativa cv. Sonam. Chemical fertilizers was added in the field as NPK (120:60:60), zinc sulphate@20 kgha-1 and cyanobacterial inoculant@12.500 kgha-1 .Four plots were selected, in triplicate, for experimental purposes.I-control (without any source of fertilizers) (II) Only cyanobacterial inoculants (III) Only chemical fertilizer (IV) Cyanobacterial inoculants

Root length, root dry weight, tiller hill-1 and biomass were found superior and statistically significant in the plots treated with cyanobacterial inoculants and chemical fertilizers in comparison to control and individual treatment. Thus, cyanobacterial inoculant with chemical fertilizer showed a progressive effect for grain yield by promoting the crop growth and tillershill-1 in combination with chemical fertilizer.
