Abstract: A field experiment entitled “Effect of Organic Manures and Mineral nutrients on growth, yield attributes and yield of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.)” was conducted during kharif season of 2015 at Agronomy farm, S.K.N. College of agriculture, Jobner, Jaipur (Rajasthan). The experiment composed of 16 treatments combination comprising four levels of organic manures (control, FYM @ 10 t ha-1, Vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1 and FYM @ 5 t ha-1 + Vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1) and four levels of Mineral nutrients (control, S @ 20 kg ha-1, S @ 20 kg ha-1 + Fe @ 10 kg ha-1 and S @ 20 kg ha-1+ Fe @ 10 kg ha-1 + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1) was laid out in randomized block design and replicated thrice. Sesame variety RT-46 was taken as a test crop. Results showed that application of FYM @ 5 t ha-1 + Vermicompost @ 2.5 t ha-1 was significantly increased plant height, number of capsules per plant, number of seeds per capsule, seed and stalk yield over rest of the treatments. Results increasing levels of the mineral nutrient treatments revealed that the application of S @ 20 kg + Fe @ 10 kg + Zn @ 5 kg ha-1 significantly increased the growth parameter (plant height), yield attributes (number of capsules per plant and number of seeds per capsule), yield (seed and stalk yield) over rest of the treatments.
