Abstract:
The present investigation entitled studies on the effect of nitrogen and phosphorus on growth, yield and quality of lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) was carried out in Rabi season 2020-2021 at Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Latur. The treatments were four levels of nitrogen (0, 75, 100, 125 kg/ha) and three levels of phosphorus (0, 75, 100 kg/ha). The experiment was laid out in FRBD with three replications. Nitrogen and phosphorus levels significantly influenced the growth, yield and quality parameters at all growth stages. The maximum plant height, number of leaves per plant, leaf area, fresh weight of leaves per plant, yield per plant, yield per plot, gross yield, marketable yield, dry matter content, fibre content and chlorophyll content were obtained with the application of 100 kg N/ha and 100 kg P/ha in lettuce.
