The present study aimed to investigate the effect of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers on growth and yield of bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria). The present experiment was carried out during July to September 2023 in Departmental Research Field of Department of Horticulture, SHUATS, Prayagraj. The experiment was conducted in Factorial Randomized Block Design (RBD), with seven treatments, replicated thrice with three varieties of Bottle Gourd. the treatments were T0 (Control (100% RDF)), T1 FYM (18 t/ha), T2 Vermicompost (1.25 t/ha), T3 Poultry manure (12.5 t/ha), T4 NPK (100%) + FYM (18 t/ha), T5 NPK (100%) + Vermicompost (1.25 t/ha), T6 NPK (100%) + Poultry manure (12.5 t/ha). From the present experimental findings it is found that the treatment T6 NPK (100%) + Poultry manure (12.5 t/ha) was found superior over other treatments in terms of growth, yield and quality of Bottle gourd. In thre varieties of Bottle gourd, variety WARAD CHECK VAREITY was found better with different treatments of organic and inorganic fertilizers, in terms of economics maximum gross and net return was recorded in treatment T6, but maximum cost benefit ratio was recorded in treatment T6and lowest readings was recorded in T0 (Control). Variety warad check vareity performed better with various treatments of organic manure and inorganic fertilizers, and T0 (Control) had the lowest readings across the board.
