Background: Novel organic liquid Nutrients have been developed based on banana pseudostem comprising of 10 macro and micro nutrients and 2 hormones, which are naturally synthesized. It is developed by Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari in Year 2009-10 under management and value addition of banana pseudostem (NAIP-II) project. To know the extent of adoption of Novel organic liquid nutrients in fruit and vegetable crops, a study was formulated to know the correlation of different factors and characteristics for adoption of the product. 
Methods: This study was conducted in the Vyara, Valod, Songadh and Dolvan blocks of Tapi district of Gujarat through Krishi Vigyan Kendra, NAU, Vyara, Tapi during 2018-19. In the study, the sample size was of 100 respondent were selected through stratified random sampling method and determine the correlation of dependent and independent variable on knowledge and adoption of Novel organic liquid nutrients in fruits and vegetable crops.
Result: In this study revealed that the adoption of Novel organic liquid nutrients up to 59 per cent in fruit crops and 76 per cent in vegetables crops among farmers. The data on correlation for extent of adoption of Novel organic liquid nutrients in fruits and vegetable crops were showed significantly results with education, training and knowledge at 5 per cent (0.1965) level of probability.
