Abstract: 
This study was conducted to reveal the effect of poultry carcass meal as a fertilizer in the growth of brinjal crop and there effect on yield and growth were also studied. The dead birds were collected from poultry farm and the carcass meal was prepared by dry rendering process. The prepared carcass meal was applied as a fertilizer along with farm yard manure and inorganic manure in different proportion to brinjal crop. The growth and yield parameter were recorded. As a result, with the incorporation of carcass meal the height of the plant was increased. The yield parameters like fruit weight, number of fruit and total yield were recorded and analysis was done. Significantly higher yields and plant height were obtained in recommended FYM + 125 % Carcass meal (T6) and significantly higher number of fruits and individual fruit weight, where observed in recommended FYM + 75 % Carcass meal + 25 % Inorganic fertilizer. Since considering the economics lower doses of carcass application is recommended. Hence it is concluded that application of 75 % Carcass meal + 25 % Inorganic fertilizer (T4) is recommended for Brinjal to achieve higher yield.
