A field experiment was conducted for two seasons,2003/2004/05 at NIHORT, Bagauda to determine the response of cabbage to different sources of organic manure. Six treatments namely 5.0that of sheep and goat manure 5.0 that of cow dung,2.5 that of pigeon droppings, 2.5 that poultry droppings, mixture of the four at 25% rate and untreated/control which were replicated three times. The results showed that cabbage at the initial stage of growth responded better to pigeon and poultry droppings. Significantly different (p<0.05) leaf area of 291.0 and 261.59 cm were obtained from the application of sheep and goat manure in 2004 and 2005. The highest yield of 21.8 that of two seasons were realized from 5.0 that of sheep and goat manure optimum yield.
