  A field trail was conducted during winter season in radish of variety Mino Early at the farm of Prithu Technical college to know the effect of different organic manure. The experimental plot was plotted in the completely randomized block design with 7 treatments and 3 replications; the treatments were FYM 20 ton/ha, poultry manure 20ton/ha, mustard cake 5 ton/ha, 50% FYM + Mustard cake, 50% FYM and 50% poultry manure, 33% FYM + 33% poultry manure + 33% Mustard cake and control plot with no fertilizer. This experiment results maximum plant height (48 cm) in mustard cake application followed by FYM+ Mustard Cake Application, maximum number of leaves (19.02) at 65 days was obtained in Mustard cake application followed by Poultry manure application. There is significantly higher root yield (59.89 t/ha), shoot weight (24.97 t/ha) and total weight (98.58) with application of mustard cake.
