A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the manural potential of two organic manure :- Farmyard manure (FYM), Poultry manure (PM) vis-Ã -vis, 0% to 100% recommended dose of fertilizer â NPK and to find out the most productive cropping system at various combination of organic manure and chemical fertilizer. Field experiment was carried out for the period of six months January to June 2010, to determine the affect of organic and chemical fertilizer application on the growth parameters of French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). During the study it was noticed that the organic manure enhanced the function of chemical fertilizer. The capital used for making organic manure is cheaper than that of chemical fertilizers and maintain the soil fertility.
