Abstract:
An ‘On Farm’ experiment was carried out at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Lohardaga during early winter seasons of year 2015 and 2016<strong> </strong>to study the “Growth and yield of cabbage var. Golden Acre as affected by nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizers under acid soil conditions”. Three types of fertilizers (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium) in different combinations were tested in a Randomized Block Design with four replications. Cabbage plants were fertilized with different rates of chemical fertilizers <em>i.e.</em> nitrogen fertilizers N (120 kg ha<sup>-1</sup>), single dose of phosphorus P (60 kg ha<sup>-1</sup>) and potassium K (60 kg ha<sup>-1</sup>).The highest plant height (cm), diameter of cabbage head (cm), weight of edible portion (g plant<sup>-1</sup>) and total weight of cabbage head (g plant<sup>-1</sup>) were obtained from the application of the recommended dose of nutrients <em>viz.,</em> 120 kg N + 60 kg P + 60 kg K/ha with FYM (25 t ha<sup>-1</sup>). The results revealed that significantly the highest plant height, higher yield and yield attributing characters were recorded with the application of NPK <em>i.e.</em> 120 kg N ha<sup>-1</sup> along with 60 kg P ha<sup>-1</sup> and 60 kg K ha<sup>-1 </sup>and FYM @ 25 t ha<sup>-1</sup>. So, it may be suggested that application of NPK <em>i.e.</em> 120 kg N ha<sup>-1</sup> along with 60 kg P ha<sup>-1</sup> and 60 kg K ha<sup>-1</sup> and FYM 25 t ha<sup>-1</sup> can be suitable fertilizer package for cabbage var. Golden Acre production in the soils of Lohardaga district of Jharkhand.
