Abstract: A study on the effect of different types of organic manure on the growth and yield of pea under Jatropha curcas based agroforestry system was conducted at Forest Nursery and Research Centre, College of Forestry, SHUATS, Allahabad, U.P. to access the potential of these different organic manure in replacing the chemical fertilizer for pea production under protection structure. The study area size was carried out in 4m2 with 27 sub-plots for each treatment. The total number of nine treatment and three replication were applied i.e. FYM@ 7.272 t/ha, Neem Cake @8.69 q/ha, Poultry manure @2.666 t/ha, Vermicompost @ 6.666 t/ha, Poultry Manure 50%+ Neem cake 50%, FYM 50% + Poultry manure 50%, FYM 50%+ Neem cake 50%, FYM 50% + Vermicompost 50% and control respectively by applying the Randomized Block Design (RBD) in the present study of the one year crop data trail, it was found out that the organic manure FYM had marked the influence on the growth parameter like plant height, number of branch, number of pods per plant, number of peas per pod, root length, and pod yield. The plant under FYM found out to be the most effective for the marketable yield of pea than the other treatment. The FYM treatment gives the highest marketable yield of 51.50 q /ha. So the treatment FYM emerged the best for the growth and yield attribute of pea as well as for jatropha based to suite the environmental condition of Allahabad region.
