Crop improvement scientists in jute constantly strives for new varieties in the seed chain and come up with new entries which needs adaptive research primarily in nutrient management. An experiment was conducted at Mondouri Research Farm, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, West Bengal during pre-kharif season of 2018 and 2019. The experimental soil was sandy loam, neutral, organic carbon (0.56%), available nitrogen 210 kg ha-1, available phosphorus 33 kg ha-1 and available potassium 166 kg ha-1. The test entry was from olitorius jute viz. V1=NJ 7050 and was adjudged against two national check variety namely V2=JRO 524 (Navin) and V3=JRO 8432 (Shakti). Four different nutrient schedules F1= Control, F2 = 60: 13: 25 (N: P: K, kg/ha) kg ha-1 F3 = 80: 17.5:33.3 (N: P: K, kg/ha), F4 = 100: 21.8: 41.7 (N: P: K, kg/ha) was taken. The experimental design was ‘’Factorial RBD’’ having two factors, i.e. fertilizer and variety. Total treatment combinations are 12 and replicated thrice. Fertilizers were applied as basal as per schedule. The seeds were sown on 17th April, 2018 and 17th April 2019. Crop management was done according to recommended package of practices. As pre harvest observations, plant height, dry matter, basal girth, leaf area index were recorded along with green yield and fibre yield. Fibre quality parameters were also adjudged to understand the superiority of different entries. The best variety was NJ 7050 as evidenced by fibre productivity of 36.44 q/ha, fibre strength of 17.6 g/tex with F3 nutrient schedule and fineness of 2.4 texresulting in fibre grade of W4+50% in pooled analysis. The maximum fibre production (37.14 q/ha) was obtained from the dose of F3 (80: 17.5:33.3 N: P: K, kg/ha). The best crop economics was given by F3V1 with net returns of Rs. 115561.60 and B:C ratio of 2.19.
