In recent years, use of livestock manure and marine bio-waste has been advocated in integrated nutrient management (INM) system in vegetable crops. Poultry manure is an excellent organic fertilizer, is concentrated source of nitrogen and other essential nutrients. In the present study the culinary herb Coriandrum sativum which has medicinal property was selected as experimental plant whose biometric parameters were analyzed in different treatment pots amended with different organic poultry and fish manure. The productivity of Coriander is influenced by several factors such as soil, varieties, fertilizer management, and also various agro techniques used for growing crop. With this context in the present experimental study two animal wastes converted to organic manure by Eudrilus eugeniae-Worm into poultry and fish manure in organic farm of Rajapalayam District was purchased and amended in 2kg garden soil in selected ratios namely 25% (T2), 50%(T3),75%(T4) and 100%(T5). (T1) was maintained as control in which no amendment was made. Corainder seed were purchased from TNAU, Coimbatore. The experimental findings pertaining to the present investigation reveals the effect of poultry manure has been higher than fish manure on the growth parameters and NPK of coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.). So the ultimate goal is to develop farming systems that are productive, energy conserving, environmentally sound conserving of natural resources such as soil and water and thus ensure food safety and quality.
