Sustainable agricultural development and crop yield maximization is the major objective of present Indian agriculture, which can be achieved through restoration and scientific management of land productivity. Under such circumstances, organic nutrient supply system plays key role as they not only supply macronutrients but also supply micronutrients as well as certain hormones and metabolites. However, nutrient management plays an important role in growth and yield of tomato. Viewing these facts, a field experiment was conducted during the winter season of 2016- 2017 to analyze the Growth and Yield of Tomato Grown Under Organic and Inorganic Nutrient Management. The organic sources of fertilizer were farm yard manure (FYM), poultry manure (PM), vermicompost (VC) with three levels of each and one chemical fertilizer dose applied as 100% RDF of NPK. The chemical fertilizer (CF) applied at recommended dose of 180: 60: 60 kg ha-1 of N:P2O5:K2O for the tomato. The results revealed that application of 10 t poultry manure ha-1 recorded maximum growth attributes, yield parameters and fruit yield (584.69 q ha-1), which was significantly superior to its own lower levels poultry manure and rest of two organic manure’s levels as well as inorganically nurtured tomato crop i.e. 100%RDF of NPK through chemical fertilizer. However, higher levels of each organic manure found significantly higher for all the growth and yield parameters as well as fruit yield.
