Abstract: The present investigation was carried out at the Expeimental Research Farm, School of Agriculture, Abhilashi University, Mandi, (H.P.) during the summer season of 2023.The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design(RBD) with 7 treatment combinations. Among different organic manures, vermicompost and FYM performed best for most of the growth and yield contributing traits of capsicum. The results revealed that maximum plant height (74.84 cm), days to first flowering (32.54 days), number of branches (4.42) and number of leaves (55.02) were recorded under treatment T2(Vermicompost (50%) + Farm Yard Manure (50%). Similarly treatment T2 showed higher results on yield parameters like fruit length (8.07 cm), fruit diameter (6.72 cm), average fruit weight (97.24 g), number of fruits per plants (13.68), yield per plant (1.33 kg), yield per plot (11.98 kg), yield per hectare (269.48 q) and numbers of picking (4.42). This treatment was followed by treatment T3(Poultry Manure 50% + Farm Yard Manure 50%) while minimum observations were recorded under treatment T7 (Absolute control). Treatment T2 recorded maximum soil pH (6.08), available potassium (230.20 kg/ha) and organic carbon (1.42%). While maximum available nitrogen (259.20 kg/ha) and phosphorous (26.51 were observed under treatment T3 (Poultry Manure 50% + Farm Yard Manure 50%).The maximum B:C ratio of (3.78) was also found to be maximum under treatment T2.
