A field experiment was carried out at the experimental farm of Experimental Farm, Division of Vegetable Science, SKUAST-K during Kharif 2013 and 2014 using Randomized Block Design to evaluate the integrated effect of chemical fertilizers, organic manures and biofertilizers on yield and quality of chilli. Results of the eighteen treatment combination revealed that integrated application of chemical fertilizers, organic manures and biofertilizers significantly increased the yield and quality characters of chilli. The efficacies of Vermicompost, poultry manure, farmyard manure, biofertilizer (Azospirillum and PSB), NPK improved the yield and quality of fruit. Increased fruit yield per plant (512.28 g), red ripe fruit yield per hectare (173.42 q),dry matter content (24.52%), ascorbic acid (106.96 mg/100g), total phenols (7.66 ml/100g),capsanthin (139.75ASTA units) and capsacin (0.34%) were recorded with T17(RFD 75% +Farmyard manure + Sheep manure + Poultry manure + Vermicompost + Biofertilizers).
