Pot experiments were carried out in the green house of the Soil Science Department, Faculty of Crop Production, Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam in 2017 summer season to determine the effects of different levels of bio fertilizer and single super phosphate (SSP) on maize. The experiments were based on three replications. The treatments used consist of three levels of bio fertilizer (0, 1.5 and 3 gram per pot), three levels of single super phosphate (SSP) (1, 1 and 1 gram per pot) and third replications were without amendments because it is a control. Results obtained showed that maximum plant height (T3) shoot (21cm) and root (13 cm), plant maximum weight (T3) fresh shoot (1.13 g) and dry shoot (0.03 g), and fresh root (0.46 g) and dry root (0.09 g) were achieved with amendments of bio fertilizer. The results obtained bio fertilizers were better than single super phosphate (SSP). The study suggests that the study sandy soil should be make improvement with bio fertilizers for advanced maize growth performance.
