This study was done to determine the effect of formulations with traditional fertilizers (cow dung and vermi-compost) on root and vegetative growth of green gram under in-vitro condition. The various treatments were done by formulation I, formulation II, Co-formulation (for pending patent, Patent App. No 201741023234), whey, molasses and formulations with traditional fertilizers in various ratios and applied as three replicates in randomized complete design. Results showed that all physiological characters of treated plants were significantly increased. But the pots treated with co-formulation and co-formulation with vermi compost in 1:3 ratio gave the highest results in shoot and root length, number of leaves and branches on 30th day of plant germination. This improved growth occurred is mainly due to the nutrient availability in bio-organic fertilizers and up taken by plants.
