A field experiment was conducted during winter (rabi) season of last week of December 2015 at the certified organic experiment farm of the SHIATS Model of Organic Farm (SMOF) in NAI, Allahabad to study the response of wheat cultivars to different sources of organic nitrogen nutrient on growth and yield of wheat. The experiment consist fifteen treatments with four replication laid out split plot design. Three cultivars and Five organic sources i.e., control (kharif green manure), FYM (15 t ha-1), Poultry manure (4 t ha-1), vermicompost (6 t ha-1), and goat manure (5 t ha-1). The result revealed that the treatment T12 [PBW 502 + Poultry manure (4 t ha-1)] recorded significant and highest number of effective tillers (7.23) and grain yield (3.95t ha-1) which was 107.77% higher than the lowest grain yield (1.93 t ha-1) observed in treatment T0 [ PBW 373 + control]. However, the highest straw yield (5.78 t ha-1) recorded was treatment T11 [PBW 502 + FYM (15 t ha-1)]. On the basic of result it is conclude that the treatment combination T12 [PBW 502 + Poultry manure (4 t ha-1)] found to be highest number of effective tillers, test weight, grain yield and straw yield.
