Abstract:

Field investigation was carried out to evaluate the Response of potato on different doses of nitrogen and potash levels on growth and yield parameters in potato var. Kufrikundan. The experiment compromised of 8 treatments where control is T1 (N0K0), and other treatments are T2 (N1K0), T3 (N2K0), T4 (N3K0), T5 (N0K1), T6 (N0K2), T7 (N2K1) and T8 (N2K3) was applied to all the treatments. The treatments were laid in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with 3 replication of each treatment. The variety of potato used was Kufrikundan. Observations on growth, yield attributing characters and yield recorded and analysed statistically. All the treatments gave better response to growth and yield attributes over control. Among the various treatment T8 (N3K2) proved superior with increased plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of stolon per plant, fresh and dry weight of tuber per plant, fresh and dry weight of shoot, fresh and dry weight of root per plant, tuber yield per hectare. Next to T 8 the treatment T7 (N2K1) showed better response to growth attributes, tuber yield. It is concluded that the application of Nitrogen and Potassium showed the significant difference. Hence it is suggested that the nutrients Nitrogen and Potassium promotes the growth and yield attributes of potato.
