The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of Crotalaria weed manures along with inorganic fertilizers on chlorophyll content, leaf area and yield of maize. A field experiment was conducted at Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, Aurangabad with six treatments and four replicates. The six treatments were green manure (GM), compost (CM), vermicompost (VM), dry leaf manure (DM), chemical fertilizers (FE) and control (CO). The observations were recorded at 101 days after sowing (DAS). Based on the results, it is cleared that the application of compost (CM) was more effective in increasing the chlorophyll content, leaf area and yield of maize.
