The present investigation entitled “Effect of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers on plant growth and fruit yield of bitter gourd (Momomordica charantia ) under Allahabad agro climatic conditions “cv. Preethi” was under taken at vegetable research field, Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences (SHUATS), Allahabad during kharif season (2017-2018). The experiment was laid out in Randomized block design with 12 treatments and each replicated thrice.
