Abstract: The field experiment was conducted during rabi season 2022 at Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, Dapoli, to evaluate the effectiveness of vermicompost and identify suitable organic sources for foliar application to chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) crops using various plant leaf extracts in organic farming practices on nutrient content of chilli. The field experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) comprising thirteen treatments replicated thrice. The result revealed that vermicompost and foliar application of liquid organic sources improved nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and micronutrient (iron, copper, manganese, zinc) content of chilli with soil application of 100% vermicompost on N equivalent basis alongwith foliar spray of vermiwash @ 0.06% N content.
