The experiment was conducted at Nagarjun Medicinal Plant Garden Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (MS). The experiment was laid out in randomize block design with the three replication. Treatments consisted of nine organic and inorganic sources of nutrient. The data in respect of growth and yield contributing characters, and piperine content as influenced by application of FYM, Neem cake and chemical fertilizer. The data revealed that the addition of neem cake along with NPK might be effected into slow release of nitrogen and was available throughout the crop growth period, which out yielded the increased dry berries yield of Piper longum. The piperine content was found numerically highest with the use of 100:50:50NPK kg/ ha + FYM10t/ ha.
