Abstract: In recent years, the demand for medicinal and aromatic plants has grown rapidly because of accelerated local, national and international interests, the latter notably from the pharmaceutical industry. Effective nutrient management plays a major role in accomplishing the increase in production. Organic sources of nutrients not only help in supplementing the nutrients but also maintain favourable physical, chemical and biological soil environment. Organically grown products also command high prices in the market. This review presents the importance of few medicinal and aromatic plants viz., Aloe vera, Ashwagandha, Ginger, Turmeric, Ocimum, Lemon grass and Mint and their response to the application of organic sources.
