Organic agriculture is on a pacing rate at the present time at the global level to protect nature and promote good health conditions for people. Keeping this in mind, the study was conducted using four different organic amendments on Strawberry (cultivar camarosa) which included T1=Panchagavya, T2=Jeevamrutham, T3=Fish meal extract, T4=Vermiwash and T5= Controlled during 2017-2018 at School of Agriculture, Lovely Professional University, Punjab. Panchagavya recorded the highest values for plant height, number of leaves, leaf area, number of runners, plant spread, pedicel thickness, number of flowers and fruits, fruit set%, fruit length and grith, fruit weight, yield per plant, TSS, fruit firmness and TSS: titrable acidity and showed less value for days to flowering. Panchagavya performed better than other treatments followed by fish meal amino acid, vermi wash, jeevamrutham and controlled. The better performance of panchagavya is due to the presence of beneficial microbes mostly lactic acid bacteria, yeast, actinomyces and certain fungi and it is having good amount of both macro (N, P, K and Ca) and micro (Zn, Fe, Cu, Mn) nutrients.
