Abstract: The present investigation entitled. “Response of bio-enhancers on the plant growth and yield of cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis)” was carried out during winter season of 2016-17 at Agricultural farm, Department of Agricultural Sciences & Engineering, IFTM University, Lodhipur Rajput, Moradabad (U.P.) in Randomized Block Design with three replications. Different combinations of Panchgavya (4%) Jivamrita (20%) and vermiwash (1:5 times dilution) with RDF (N:P:K::120:30:30) and control were used as treatment. Observations were recorded on vegetative and yield parameters. On the basis of observations recorded, it is found that the performance of the RDF (N:P:K::120:30:30) was better in all vegetative and yield parameters such as plant height (26.73cm), number of leaves (14.67), at 15, 30 and 45 DAT, whole plant weight(1341g) curd weight(544g) and yield (29.04t/ha.). The values for the characters plant height(26.30cm), number of leaves (14.53cm), at 15, 30 and 45 DAT, whole plant weight (1290g), curd weight (488g) and yield (27.06t/ha.) were recorded nearly similar in a treatment combination of bio-enhancers T5 Panchagavya (4%) + Vermiwash (1:5 times dilution) to the RDF The treatment T5 (4% Panchagavya + 1:5 times dilution of Vermiwash) came out as the best combination for growth and yield characters of cauliflower for commercial production because organically produced vegetables fetch higher price in the market therefore, even if the yield is slightly low with organic inputs, it can be recommended for the commercial production of cauliflower in account of human health, soil health, environmental health and quality product instead of quantity.
