The agricultural lands are depleted of soil fertility due to continuous cultivation. In order to increase the soil fertility, man uses inorganic fertilizers. Though they promote the growth of crops, susceptibility is the negative impact by over utilization of fertilizers. Application of chemicals is widely practiced to control plant disease in modern agriculture and it also provides mutants of pathogens. To overcome all these factors application of organic manure is suggested. The present study was aimed to compare the effect of vermicompost, farmyard manure and bioinoculants on growth parameters namely shoot length, number of branches, number of leaves, fresh weight and dry weight and also the antioxidant potentials of Adathoda vasica. The manural potential of three manures: vermicompost, farmyard Manure (FYM) and bioinoculants was evaluated at different intervals of time. Our research showed the growth parameters, antioxidants and enzymatic antioxidant activity rate was high in FYM and in combination of all the treatment when applied to Adathoda vasica plants when compared to other treatments.
