A field study was conducted in the Department of Agronomy, JNKVV, Jabalpur during 2015-16 and 2016-17 to judge the effect of bio-organic preparations (viz., BD-500, BD-501 and panchgavya) blended with vermicompost on the yield of Sharbati wheat varieties. The results showed that the combined application of all bio-organic preparations i.e. BD-500, BD-501 and panchgavya along with vermicompost recorded superior values of yield attributes tillers/m2 (320.94), grains/ear head (27.65), test weight (36.90 g) and ear length (7.77 cm) along with noteworthy hike (22.28, 18.25 and 6.39 percent) in seed yield of wheat over alone application of BD-500, BD-501 and panchgavya with Vermicompost respectively. The Sharbati wheat varieties JW-3020 out yielded to other varieties under organic production system with superior values of yield attributes (tillers 288.30 m2, grains/ear head 28.71, test weight 35.6 g and ear length 7.40 cm. The cultivation of wheat variety JW-3020 and combined application of all bio-organic preparations (VC+BD-500+BD-501+Panchagavya) along with vermicompost gave higher yield as compared to other combinations of wheat varieties and application of other bio-organic preparations.
