A field experiment was conducted in the year 2010-11 and 2011-12 to find out the effect of organic and inorganic manures on growth and yield in acid lime. The plant growth parameters in respect of plant height in both season was found maximum in the plants treated with 75% RDF (450:225:225 g NPK) + 50 kg FYM+ 500 g AM/plant + 100g PSB /plant + 200g ZnSO4/plant, (T8) While mean plant spread and plant volume was maximum with T10 75% RDF (450:225:225g NPK) + 50 kg FYM + 100g Azospirillum + 100g PSB /plant + 200g ZnSO4/plant during both season. Yield attributing characters viz., maximum fruit set with minimum fruit drop and highest fruit yield (number of fruits per plant, kg/plant and tons/ha) were observed with the application of 75% RDF 450:225:225g NPK + 50kg FYM+100g Azospirillum + 100g PSB /Plant+200g ZnSO4/plant. (T10).
