Abstract:

Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) requires abundant nitrogen to perform well and has low nitrogen use efficiency. Generally Indian soils have been reported to be low in nitrogen, so the exogenous supply found beneficial. A field experiment was conducted during rabi season at Vegetable Research Farm, Kalayanpur, Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur, Uttar Pradeshunder irrigated condition in factorial randomized block design with three replications to find the suitable nitrogen dose for different varieties. Four varieties namely KufriAnand, KufriBahar, KufriKhyati and KufriPukhraj and four doses of nitrogen i.e. 0 kg ha-1, 60 kg ha-1, 120 kg ha-1 and 180 kg ha-1were taken into account to study. Different parameters studied were plant stand per plot, number of sprout per plant, height of plant, number of leaves per plant, different grade of tubers and total tuber yield. KufriPukhraj with nitrogen dose of 180 kg ha-1 was found best among all the treatments.
