A field experiment was conducted at the Herbal Garden of Department of Forestry, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.). During the season of 2021-22 with a view to study the “Effect of organic manure on plant growth attributes of Krishna Tulsi [Ocimum tenuiflorum (L.)] Under Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus tereticornis) based Agroforestry system”. The field experiment was conducted on Krishna Tulsi intercrops under Eucalyptus tree crop were used to grown and treatment was replicated three times in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with plant spacing 40cm × 40cm. The soil of experimental field was clay to loam soil. The investigation, There were The fertilizer mixture FYM and vermicompost were used, which were applied at different concentrations in Tulsi intercrop in eight treatments viz., T1: - FYM 100%, T2: - Vermicompost 100%, T3:- Neem cake 100 %, T4:- FYM 75% + Vermicompost 25 %, T5:- FYM 75% + Neem Cake 25%, T6:- Vermicompost 50% + Neem Cake 50%, T7: - FYM 50 % + Neem Cake 25 %+ Vermicompost 25 % and T8:- Control (No Manures). The crop growth parameters i.e., Plant height (cm), Number of branches plant-1 and Collar diameter (mm) were significantly superior in the treatment T2 (Vermicompost 100%) at different crop growth stages at 30, 60, 90 and at time of harvest. On the basis of above findings, treatment T2 (Vermicompost 100%) stand could be better performance first in position and T1 (FYM 100%) stand in second order of preference. However, treatment T4 (FYM 75% + Vermicompost 25 %) comes in next in order. Therefore, it may be concluded that treatment T2 (Vermicompost 100%) may be prefer for higher growth in crop Krishna Tulsi.
