A field experiment was conducted to examine the impact of organic manures and biofertilizers on the vegetative and yield behaviour of radish during 2016-17 at the Horticultural Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Chaudhary Charan Singh University Campus, Meerut (U.P). The experimental field was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications. The experiment comprised of nine treatments consisting of different organic manures and biofertilizers. All variables parameters regarding vegetative and yield behaviour were significantly influenced by organic manures and biofertilizers. Results indicated that combined application of organic manure and biofertilizer i.e. Vermicompost @ 2.5 tonnes/ha + Azotobacter @ 2.5 kg/ha (T8) gave the better effect on vegetative and yield parameters viz., plant height (33.88 cm), number of leaves per plant (26.21), leaf width (10.70 cm), root length (23.33 cm), root diameter (4.88 cm), root weight (179.52 g) and yield (394.94 q/ha) as compared to other treatments.
