A field experiment was carried out during two consecutive years viz., 2017 and 2018 at Post Graduate Institute Research Farm, Central Campus, Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth, Rahuri, Dist. Ahmednagar, Maharashtra (India) to study the Influence of Canopy Modification and Biofertigation Treatment on Yield Attributes And Yield In Organic Pigeonpea. The results revealed that application of jeevamrut at 400 l ha-1 and canopy modification i.e nipping at 50 DAS significantly influenced yield attributes and yield of pigeonpea. It was significant in enhancing the grain yield, stalk yield and harvest index of pigeonpea besides improvement in yield attributes like number of pods plant-1 and pod weight plant-1. Based on two years of experimentation it could be concluded that, in organic cultivation of pigeonpea, canopy modification through nipping at 50 days after sowing and application of farm yard manure at 5 t ha-1 with biofertigation of jeevamrut @ 400 l ha-1 in four equal split at 30, 45, 60 and 75 DAS found suitable for obtaining higher productivity.
