A field experiment was carried out during rabi season of 2022-23 on wheat crop at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj, (U.P.) to determine the “Influence of organic manure and spacing on growth and yield of wheat”. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with nine treatments and replicated thrice. The result showed that treatment 8 [Vermicompost (3.3 t/ha) + Spacing (22.5 cm × 10 cm)] recorded significantly higher plant height (101.90 cm), number of tillers/running row meter (84.00), plant dry weight (23.10g), crop growth rate during the interval of 60-80 (23.08 g/m2/day) number of effective tillers/running meter (64.37), Grains/spike (45.23cm), Test weight (29.89 g) in Wheat.
