The consistency relations for the large scale structure provide a link between the amplitude of baryonic acoustic oscillations in the squeezed bispectrum (BS) and in the power spectrum (PS). This relation depends on the large scale bias of the considered tracer, bα, and on the growth rate of structures, f. Remarkably, originating from basic symmetry principles, this relation is exact and independent on the underlying cosmological model. By analysing data from large volume simulations, both for dark matter and for haloes, we illustrate how BS and PS measurements can be used to extract bα and f without the need of any theoretical approximation scheme for the computation of the BS and the PS. We show that, combining measurements of the squeezed BS with the quadrupole to monopole ratios for the PS at large scales can successfully break the bα -f degeneracy. We forecast that this method, applied to a Euclid-like survey, will be able to measure bias, and then the growth rate, at better than 10% level, with no extra assumption.
