Abstract: This study employed the experimental method of research to determine the growth response of onion applied with different forms of rabbit manure. It was conducted in SitioCabag, Brgy. Poblacion, Magsaysay, Occidental Mindoro from December 24, 2020 to April 2020. The same cultural management practices was used to each replication to produce healthy onions, the only variation is the treatment used such as commercial organic fertilizer, fresh rabbit manure and rabbit vermicompost. Result shows that the onion bulbs applied with the fresh rabbit manure got the highest growth response in terms of number of leaves and length of roots as well as the highest yield response in terms of bulb size, fresh weight of bulbs; and dry weight of bulbs as compared to the other treatments. Further, there is no significant difference on the growth and yield response of bulb onion applied with different forms of rabbit manure.
