A field experiment was conducted at Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir during Kharif 2013 and Kharif 2014 with an objective to assess effectiveness of organic and inorganic nutrient package for enhancing growth and yield in chilli. The experiment was carried out in randomized block design with eighteen treatments i.e. organic, inorganic and combinations of organic and inorganic sources. The organic sources used were: Farmyard manure, Sheep manure, Poultry manure, Vermicompost, Biofertilizers and integrated with 50%, 75% and 100% recommended fertilizer dose in the form of chemical fertilizer. Results revealed that Treatment T14 (RFD 75% + Poultry manure) recorded significantly higher values for plant height (58.06), plant spread (53.77) and whereas T17 (RFD 75% + Farmyard manure + Sheep manure + Poultrymanure + Vermicompost + Biofertilizers) recorded significantly higher values for number of fruits per plant (58.42), fruit length (10.41 cm), fruit girth (1.92 cm), average fruit weight (7.92 g) and red ripe fruit yield per hectare (173.42 q). It also recorded lowest days to 50% maturity of fruits (96.92 days).
