A study was conducted for a period of 60 days on the effect of partly decomposed Ipomoea carnea, sheep droppings and Pongamia pinnata leaves on the growth and yield of rose flowers. The ratios of total nodes, leaves and flowers of rose raised in the respective organic manures were 107:456:26, 91:339:20 and66:302:18. Of the three organic manures used in the rose cultivation, the manure prepared from Ipomoea carnea showed better results over the manures derived from sheep droppings and Pongamia pinnata leaves, though all of them have high nutrients. From the current result, it is inferred that the organic materials used have a positive role in the growth and yield of rose as revealed by increased values, though a differential effect was noticed in the said manures.
