Background: Panchagavya is an organic formulation made from cow goods. The usage of fermented organic formulation with supportive beneficial microorganisms as foliar nourishment has come into the picture of modern agriculture for giving raise to good quality of non-residue protected food. 
Methods: A field experiment was conducted from June to October 2020 at Farmer’s field to study the Influence of Inorganic nutrients on Panchagavya on growth attributes of direct seeded Rice (BPT 5204). The experiment was laid out in a Factorial randomized block design in which factor A consists of Inorganic nutrients and Factor B consists of Panchagavya at different doses and time of applications. Factor A consists of viz., A1 100% RDF, A2 75% RDF and A3 50% RDF and Factor B consists of B1 No spraying, B2 Panchagavya 3% Spraying at 15, 30 and 45 DAS, B3 Panchagavya 3% Spraying at 10, 20, 30 and 45 DAS, B4 Panchagavya 4% Spraying at 15, 30 and 45 DAS B5 Panchagavya 4% Spraying at 10, 20, 30 and 45 DAS. 
Result: The results of the study revealed that the application of 100% Inorganic nutrients along with the foliar application of Panchagavya @ 4% at 4 times spraying showed the highest plant height, Number of effective tillers and leaf area index.
