An experiment was undertaken on french bean var. contender during summer season of 1997 and 1998 in sandy loam soil with nine treatments comprising the combinations of three fertilizers Le. B) -Farm yard manure +Dense organic manure, B2 -Bio-fertilizer + Dense organic manure, 83 -chemical fertilizers and three pesticides viz., P1 Neemax. P2-Garlic extract. P3-chemical pesticide Endosulfan with three replications. The treatment combination of farm yard manure + dense organic manure and Neemax gave higher yield, higher protein and vitamin C content with prolonged shelf life under ambient storage conditions, than the other treatments. Howewr nitrate content which caused health hazards was low in treatment having bio-fertilizer + dense organic manure. "Neemax" a bie-pesticides controlled the bean beetle effectively as compare to endosulfan a chemical pesticide.
