The present investigation entitled “Effect of soil application of NPK on yield traits and Economics of Radish (Raphanus sativus L.) cv. Kashi Hans under Bundelkhand region” was conducted at Vegetable Research Farm at College of Horticulture, Banda University of Agriculture and Technology, Banda, Uttar-Pradesh during Rabi season of 2021. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The treatments involved in the study were 10 in numbers i.e.,T1 50:100:50 NPK/ha (control), T2 100:100:50 NPK/ha, T3 150:100:50 NPK/ha, T4 200:100:50 NPK/ ha, T5 50:150:50 NPK/ha, T6 50:200:50 NPK/ha, T7 50:250:50 NPK/ha, T8 50:100:100 NPK/ha, T9 50:100:150 NPK/ha and T10 50:100:150 NPK/ha and they were applied with an objective to study the effect of NPK on yield traits and economics of radish. On the basis of result obtained and summarized from the present study, it can be concluded that all the observations taken for radish were found to be superior with the application of NPK. In the present study, it was observed that the application of 200:100:50 NPK/ha increased all the parameters [i.e. Length and diameter of root (cm), weight of root and leaves (g), root: shoot ratio, root yield per plot (Kg), total yield (q/ha) and B: C ratio] followed by 150:100:50 NPK/ha and 50:250:50 NPK/ha. Therefore among all the combinations of NPK applied 200:100:50 NPK/ha was found significantly most effective in increasing the yield and yield attributing traits. Hence, application of 200:100:50 NPK/ha may be suggested in radish plant in order to get higher yield of good quality roots as well as the maximum net return per hectare and B: C ratio under Bundelkhand condition.
