Recently, excessive and unconscious uses of chemical fertilizer cause significant hazards on natural resources and subsequently cause serious environmental problems. As an alternative instead of chemical fertilizer, microbial fertilizers are used for healthier soil and plant. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of different doses of microbial fertilizers on yield and essential oil ratio in Mint (Mentha piperita L.) cultivars. The experiment was carried out in a pot according to the randomized parcel  design. The study was carried out with three cultivars namely, Mentha piperita swiss, M. piperita chocolate, M. piperita multimentha, four doses (control, 1, 1.5 and 2 doses) and three replicates. In the study; plant height (cm), fresh herb yield (g/m2), drog herb yield (g/m2), drog leaf yield (g/m2), essential oil ratio (%) and essential oil yield (L/m2) were examined. Along with the study, Microbial fertilizers exhibited significant effects on the parameters examined herein. The yield of fresh herb yield and drog leaf yield were found between 1342.5-2001.1 g/m2, 160.9-228.0 g/m2 respectively and the essential oil ratio varied between 1.55-1.93% according to microbial fertilizer doses.
