The experiment was conducted to estimate the effect of different organic fertilizer levels on growth and yield of coriander, Coriandram sativum L under subabul, Leucaena leucocephala (Lam) de Wit alley cropping system. Coriander crop was grown under four to five years old existing tree species of subabul-based alley cropping system. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications and 8 treatments. The treatments used were T0: control, T1: 100% recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) through vermicompost (VC), T2: 100% RDF through neem cake (NC), T3: 100% RDF through farmyard manure (FYM), T4: 50% RDF through VC + 50% RDF through NC, T5: 50% RDF through NC + 50% RDF through FYM, T6: 50% RDF through VC + 50% RDF through FYM and T7: 50% RDF VC + 25% RDF NC + 25% RDF FYM. Results revealed that the T7 emerged superior in respect of growth attributes as well as yield of coriander and gave maximum seed yield (19.76 q/ha) followed by treatment T4 with 16.06 q/ha seed yield while minimum was recorded in control. Therefore a systematic coriander cropping with sufficient management practices is more beneficial for livelihood on a sustainable basis.
