Awareness to wards soil health and food quality has forced to find out a suitable and eco-friendly nutrient management system of crop production. Integrated nutrient management system found suitable on yield of cereal crops, but has least impact on leguminous crops. To study the impact of nutrient management practices and tillage practices was studied at the farm of Department of Soil Science, CSKHPKV, Palampur during 2013-16 gram-maize cropping sequence. The organic management with conventional tillage was found to be significantly superior with rest of the treatment combinations on yield attributes, symbiotic parameters and yield of gram in all the three years. The major constraints to grow gram at Palampur was the attack of root rot disease. The disease incidence was reduced through organic nutrient management with conventional tillage. The yield attributes and yield of maize was better in integrated management in  organic management in second year. The conventional tillage in both the years registered significant impact on yield and yield attributes of maize.
