A field experiment was conducted to study the Yield, Quality and Plant Nutrition of Summer sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) as Influenced by INM under Irrigated condition was carried out during summer season, 2018 at farmer’s field, in Semmangudi village of Sirkali Taluk, Tamilnadu. The experiment consisted of twelve treatment combinations viz., T1 - Control, T2 - Farm yard manure @ 12.5 t ha-1 + 50 % RDF, T3 - Vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1 + 50 % RDF, T4 - Panchagavya @ 3% (foliar spray) + 50% RDF, T5-Dasagavya @ 3% (foliar spray) + 50% RDF, T6 - Amirthakaraisal @ 3% (foliar spray) + 50% RDF, T7 – T2 + Panchagavya @ 3% (foliar spray), T8 - T2 + Amirthakaraisal @ 3% (foliar spray), T9 - T2 + Dasagavya @ 3% (foliar spray), T10 - T3 + Panchagavya @ 3% (foliar spray), T11 - T3 + Amirthakaraisal @ 3% (foliar spray), T12 - T3 + Dasagavya @ 3% (foliar spray) were tested in randomized block design with three replications. The study revealed that the significantly higher seed yield (1013 kg ha-1) and oil content were significantly increased with the combination of (T7) Farm yard manure @ 12.5 t ha-1 + 50% RDF + Panchagavya @ 3% (foliar spray) followed by Vermicompost @ 5 t ha-1 + 50 % RDF + Panchagavya @ 3% (foliar spray) (T10). With respect to organic manures, organic sprays and soil test based inorganic fertilizers gave higher seed yield, stalk yield, nutrient uptake, gross returns and net returns were recorded.
