Abstract: The field experiment was conducted during 2010 - 2011 at the Experimental Farm of School of Agricultural Sciences and Rural Development, Medziphema Campus, Nagaland University, Nagaland to study the effect of different sources of manuring on growth, of Chilli (Capsicum annum L.) The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications. Integrated nutrient management (INM) is technically sound, economically viable, socially acceptable, practically feasible and ecologically sound system of production. The basic principle of INM is the maintenance of soil fertility, sustainable agricultural productivity and improving farmers’ profitability. A field experiment was carried out at the experimental farm of SASRD, Medziphema Campus, Nagaland University, during October, 2010 to May, 2011 using Randomized Block Design to evaluate the integrated effect of chemical fertilizers, organic manures and biofertilizers on growth, of chilli under the foothill condition of Nagaland. Results of the twelve treatment combination field experiment revealed that integrated application of chemical fertilizers, organic manures and biofertilizers significantly increased the growth, characters of chilli over control. Maximum plant height (105.58 cm), number of branches plant-1 (104.36), number of leaves plant-1 (516.47), leaf area (55.65 cm2).
