A field investigation was conducted during the kharif season of 2012 at the experimental farm of School of Agricultural Sciences and Rural Development, Nagaland University, Medziphema Campus, Nagaland. Sole and combined applications of different organic nutrient sources viz., FYM, vermicompost, pig manure, rhizobium and PSB (Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria) were evaluated in order to optimize organic nutrient management for green gram under rainfed conditions. Results showed that the combined application of rhizobium + PSB + vermicompost @ 0.7 t/ha was found to be the most responsive nutrient management practice recording significantly higher crop growth and yield attributes and ultimately recording the highest seed and stover yields of 369 and 989 kg/ha respectively. Soil available N and K status after harvest as well as seed and stover NPK uptake was found to be significantly higher with combined application of organic manures viz., vermicompost and FYM along with biofertilizers rhizobium and PSB.
