The present experiment was conducted under field conditions on cauliflower in randomized block design (R.B.D.) with three replications at the farm of Udai Pratap Autonomous College, Varanasi (U.P.) during the year 2015-2016. The different treatment were comprises urea, farm yard manure and neem cake. During the experimentations, observations were recorded on various growth and yield characters of cauliflower. Nitrogen sprayed in the form of urea was found significant in each growth characters at all the stages. Growth characters i.e. number of leaves per plant, height, thickness, fresh weight and dry weight of leaves and curd. Yield was greatly influenced by various levels of nitrogen. Highest fresh weight 994.60 g, dry weight 99.0 g and yield 397.70 q/ha was recorded under the treatment FYM @ 20 t/ha + Neem cake @ 5t/ha + Urea @ 150:80:60 kg/ha.
