The present investigation was carried out to find out combined effect of bulky manures, liquid organic inputs and bio fertilizers on plant growth, plant nutrient content and soil properties under capsicum (Capsicum annuum L.). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with 7 different treatments. The maximum plant height (58.5 cm), plant biomass (66.40 g plant-1), number of fruits (15.24 plant-1) were recorded significantly in treatment T2 comprising 90% RDN along with PGPR and fermented organics. The maximum fruit yield (31.15 t ha-1 and 1.051 kg plant-1 ), NPK content in shoot (5.29, 0.64 and 6.27%), root (4.23, 0.66 and 3.54%), fruit (4.63, 0.61 and 4.23%) and the highest uptake of NPK (14.25, 1.87 and 13.81 kg ha-1) and among soil properties, significant higher value of available macronutrient (445.33, 77.80, and 296.69 kg ha-1), available micronutrient Zn, Cu, Fe, and Mn (2.37, 2.33, 6.73 and 2.62ppm respectively) and organic carbon (1.33%) were observed in treatment T2. Similarly, among various microbial properties viz, microbial count, microbial biomass and soil enzymes such as Dehydrogenase, Phosphatase and Urease activities were also recorded significantly maximum in treatment T2 as compared to T1. This investigation concluded that the application of treatment T2 (90 % RDN by Vermicompost and Poultry Manure along with fermented organics i.e. Panchagavya, Jeevamrut, Amritpani and liquid bio-fertilizer) significantly enhanced plant growth parameters, soil parameters and microbiological properties of soil.
