In an experiment conducted during 2011-2012 on effect of organic manures on growth, yield, sigatoka disease intensity and nematode population of banana cv. Grand Naine, revealed that response of organic manures was significant for all the growth parameters. Significantly maximum values were recorded by the plants receiving FYM 10 kg/plant + Neem cake 1.25 kg/plant + Vermicompost 5 kg /plant + Wood ash 3.75 kg/plant i.e. T2  while, minimum values in the plants with triple green manuring with Sun hemp + Cowpea + cowpea as intercrop T6 for all the growth parameters. The treatment T11: 300:100:300 g NPK / plant AICRP (TF) Package recorded significantly maximum (63.87 t/ha) yield, while it was minimum in N0 + P0 + K0 i.e. T5 plots (51.09 t/ha). In vegetative stage, the lowest sigatoka leaf spot index (30.81%) was recorded in the treatments of T7 ,  the sigatoka leaf spot intensity was highest (37.49%) in the treatment of T11. The nematode population was lowest (103.33/250cc soil) in the treatment of T12 , while in 10 g roots the nematode population was lowest (21.33/10 g roots) in T8.
