Basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) is a medicinal plant belonging to the mint dark, with fresh vegetables and spices are used. Nowadays the use of chemical inputs in farming causing severe environmental problems such as water pollution, soil and soil fertility is decreasing. Sources rather than chemical, biological resources important for the preservation of fertility and biological activity, improving the quality of agricultural products and ecosystem health is. In spring and summer 2012 in order to test the research station in Karaj Azad University Mahdasht done. Factorial experiment using randomized complete block design with four replications. Treatments include: intraradices Glomus Mycorrhizal fungi, bacteria Azotobacter chrocooccum and vermicompost were each at two levels, taking no actions were taken. Analysis of variance showed that the effect of triple Mycorrhizal, Azotobacter and vermicompost increased compared to control growth traits, plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of inflorescences per plant, stem diameter and Dry matter yield level (p
