Abstract: A field experiment was conducted for two successive seasons (1995/96 and 1996/97) to examine the effects of inoculation, micronutrient foliar fertilization and cultivar on growth and yield of snap bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), in spilt-spilt plot design. The main plot was used for the inoculation, the subplots were allotted for micronutrients and the cultivars were placed in the sub-subplots. The results revealed that micronutrient fertilizers consistently gave a considerable increase in the number of pods and consequently higher yield. The cultivar Narina, generally, had heavier seeds, higher number of seeds per pod and taller plants compared to the cultivar Maestero. Rhizobium inoculation had no significant effect on the parameters measured. This necessitates the estimation of the number of native rhizobia for the crop of interest for accurate assessment of the need for inoculation. A significant interaction was found between cultivars and fertilizers only in leaf nitrogen content.
