An experiment entitled “Effect of Integrated Nutrient Management on Growth, Yield and Yield attributing parameters of french bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)” was carried out during Rabi season of 2018-19 at the research plot of All India Coordinated Research Project (AICRP) on Vegetable Crops of Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology (OUAT), Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with eight treatments replicated thrice. All the recommended package of practices except nutrient management was given uniformly to all the treatments to raise a good crop. In this investigation, the results revealed that application of 75% NPK through inorganic source along with 25% N through vermicompost (T3) recorded significantly higher growth parameters viz., plant height (47 cm), number of primary branches (5.53), leaf area (169.55 cm2) ; yield and yield attributing parameters viz., pod length (13.58 cm), pod girth (1.17 cm), average pod weight (6.45 g), number of pods per plant (23.95) and pod yield (97.89 q ha-1). The next best treatment was T2 where 75% NPK through inorganic source along with 25% N through FYM was applied.
