A field experiment was conducted at Horticulture Farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Jaipur) during Rabi season 2016-17 and 2017-2018. The experiment consisting of four bio-fertilizers (control, Azotobacter, PGPR (Pseudomonas) and Azotobacter + PGPR (Pseudomonas) and five bio-regulators (control, Thiourea @ 500 ppm, Thiourea @ 1000 ppm, salicylic acid @ 100 ppm and piquet chloride @ 100 ppm). The total 20 treatment combinations were tested in split-plot design with three replications. It was observed that the application of bio-fertilizers Azotobacter + PGPR (Pseudomonas) significantly increased the plant height at 45 DAP and at harvest as compared to control. The results of the study clearly indicated that foliar application of thiourea @ 1000 ppm to the garlic crop significantly increased the plant height, fresh weight of leaves, leaf area, dry weight of leaves and crop growth rate, being statistically at par with application of thiourea @ 500 ppm and salicylic acid @ 100 ppm.
