The experiment was conducted at Kethanur village, Palladam taluk, Tirupur District, Tamil Nadu to assess the effect of various organic sources on productivity and quality of snake gourd. The experiment was conducted in randomized block design using eleven treatments and replicated thrice. The treatments used were; Enriched farmyard manure, vermicompost, groundnut cake, neem cake are applied alone or combined with foliar application of panchagavya (3%) and 3G extract (3 per cent), farmer practices of organic cultivation and control (no manure/foliar spray). The results revealed that significantly enhance the growth, yield (20.15 t/ha) and quality parameters of snake gourd performance by vermicompost + panchagavya spray (3 per cent) followed by application of vermicompost + 3G extract (3 per cent) and EFYM + 3G extract spray @ 3 per cent than control. Based on the results, these studies suggest that it is advantageous to application of vermicompost along with foliar spray of panchagavya or 3G extract (1 per cent) as an effective on growth and yield in order to improving the quality parameters of snake gourd under organic cultivation system.

Keywords: Vermicompost, Panchagavya, 3G extract, Yield, Quality.
