Crop production is influenced by the fertility of soil has significant impact on physiological and biochemical processes in favour of higher crop production. So, addition of organic manures to soil in optimum and proper proportion is necessary for sustainable production. A field experiment was conducted to study the influence of solid and liquid organic manures on parching sorghum during Rabi, 2020 at Instructional farm, College of Agriculture, Vijayapur. The experiment was laid out under randomized complete block design with 9 treatments replicated thrice. Application of ghanajeevamrutha based on 100% RDN as basal dose coupled with foliar application of 25 per cent jeevamrutha at 20 and 45 DAS recorded significantly higher plant height (176.5 cm) and leaf area (2358.2 cm2 plant-1) at harvest, yield attributes such as roasted panicle weight per plant (60.99g) and roasted grain yield (1505 kg ha-1), higher gross returns (1,59,480 Rs. ha-1), net returns (1,22,208 Rs. ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (4.28) over other treatments.
