A field experiment was conducted at Institutional Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur, (Rajasthan) during kharif, 2014 on clay loam soil. The experiment was laid out according to factorial randomized block design with three replications. The experiment comprised four fertility levels of (control, 50% RDF, 75% RDF, and 100 % RDF) and four biofertiliizers levels (control, PSB, Rhizobium and Rhizobium + PSB) were applied to the black gram var.T-9. The application of 100 % RDF and seed

However, bulk density, particle density, porosity, Ec and pH was found non significant after harvesting of the crop due to above properties don't change in one cropping season.
