An experiment was conducted during 2019-20 and 2020-21 at College of Agriculture, Sumerpur, Rajasthan, India comprises 6 organic weed management and 5 organic nutrient management treatments were implemented in split plot design with 3 replications to find out the best organic weed and nutrient management practice for maize cultivation. The weed free check improved various yield attributes significantly as compared to weedy check and was almost at par to treatment stale seedbed+ hoeing once at 20 DAS + straw mulch @ 5t ha-1 at 30 DAS. The weed free check showed its superiority and reflected in grain yield of 3,358 kg ha-1. Among the organic nutrient management practices, the treatment 75% of recommended dose of nitrogen (RDN i.e. 90 kg N equivalent) through vermicompost in two splits (75% at sowing +25% as top dressing at 30 DAS) along with seed treatment with fermented organic manure i.e. beejamurt and two spray of jeevamurt significant recorded mean maximum grain yield (3,169 kg ha-1) as compared to 100% RDN through FYM at harvest in pooled analysis. Similar trend was reported in various yield attributes.
