Indian bean is an imperious vegetable crop of India as it works as source of nutritional food along with handful amount of money to grower in its seasonal tenure. Organic farming is crucial need of recent era in order to provide healthy food without adversely affecting the ecosystem. Considering above given facts, present experiment was taken with objective to find out effects of Novel organic liquid nutrient and Novel Plus organic liquid nutrient application on economics of Indian bean [Lablab purpureus (L.) Sweet] production. The experiment was portrayed under Randomized Block Designed with three replications and seven treatments i.e. No spray (T1), 0.5% Novel organic liquid nutrient (T2), 1.0% Novel organic liquid nutrient (T3), 1.5% Novel organic liquid nutrient (T4), 0.5% Novel Plus organic liquid nutrient (T5), 1.0% Novel Plus organic liquid nutrient (T6) and 1.5% Novel Plus organic liquid nutrient (T7) at Navsari Agricultural University, Gujarat, India on Indian bean variety Gujarat Navsari Indian Bean 22 (GNIB 22). Higher net income (Rs. 1,05,178 per ha) and BCR (1.21) were found under the treatment T5 (0.5% Novel Plus organic liquid nutrient). Thus, application of 0.5% Novel Plus organic liquid nutrient increases the yield and BCR of Indian bean production without adversely affecting the ecosystem as it is an organic input.
