A field trial was conducted during 2014-15 in winter season at Horticultural Research Centre, Chauras Campus, H.N.B Garhwal University, Srinagar (Garhwal), Uttarakhand to study the effect of organic manures on growth, yield and quality of radish cv. Pusa Desi. The experiment consisted of 19 treatments with control, laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The quantitative parameters were recorded at 15 days interval.The maximum plant height (36.13 cm) number of leaves (16.88) at 60 days, leaf length (17.17 cm), total plant height (58.68 cm) and root length (20.04 cm) were recorded with the combined application of organic manures (Vermicompost 50% + Poultry manure 50%). Whereas, the total plant weight (305.04 g), fresh weight of leaves (134.77 g), root weight (197.07 g), root diameter (5.74 cm) and yield/ha (36.42 t/ha) were significantly maximum with with the combined use of (FYM 100% + Vermicompost 100% + Poultry manure 100%). The quality parameters like T.S.S (6.15°B) and Vit-C (18.13 mg/100g) were recorded maximum in combined application of FYM 50% + Poultry manure 50% and acidity (0.64) was maximum due to the FYM 100%. The study suggested that the combined application of Vermicompost 50% + Poultry manure 50% or (F.Y.M + Vermicompost + Poultry manure) were highly beneficial for all of the growth, yield and quality parameters.
