To study the effects of different manure levels and two branch management methods on organic production of Schneider squash, a field experiment was conducted during years 2005 and 2006. Treatments were four manure levels (10, 15, 20, 25 tons.ha-1) and two branch management methods (with and without wood pole), which were allocated to main plots and subplots, respectively. Results showed that crop performance in branch management method without wood pole was better than branch management method with wood pole. Results showed that in the first year, manure level had significant effect on fruit and seed yields. However, these traits were not significantly affected by manure levels in the second year. For both years, there were no differences in seed numbers due to manure levels. Seed oil content was slightly increased when manure level was increased from 10 to 25 tons.ha-1.
