Cereal crops are high N requirement crops as compare to other crops. They are heavy feeder of all the essential nutrients such as N, P, and K. They are exhaustive in nature. Due to erratic use of chemical fertilizers; the soil fertility has been decreasing day by day resulting low productivity. It is due to many unavoidable reasons associated with crop production. The similar problems are seen in organic farming when inputs were soil applied. It may be due to various losses or inappropriate application of organic inputs to the soil or insufficiency to meet the crop demand. To equalize the yield potential for cereal and millet crops the foliar nutrient management through organic formulations suitably fulfilling the nutrient requirement. The organic formulations such as vermiwash, jeevamrutha, cow urine, and panchagavya are most frequently used by the researchers and farmers so reviewing on this aspect has more important.
