Abstract: The present study entitled “Evaluation of different nitrogenous fertilizers on soil properties, yield and quality of apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.)” was conducted at research farm of the Department of Soil Science and Water Management, Nauni Solan during 2015 and 2016 with 11 treatments. Half dose of nitrogen was applied during spring before flowering and remaining half dose was applied one month after first application. From the foregoing results it may be concluded that treatment T7 (urea 100%+lime 708 g/tree) was found to be best treatment for TSS, fruit size, fruit set and yield. Whereas, fruit quality in terms of fruit length, fruit breadth and fruit weight improved under T1 treatment (urea 0%+Ca (NO3)2 100%). From the present investigation, it may be concluded that urea and lime application in treatment T7 (urea100%+lime708g/tree) helped in obtaining, fruit set, fruit quality and yield during both the years of experimentation.
