Abstract: Research on sacred basil to increase its productivity was studied in a field experiment during the year 2015-16 at the Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi. Result revealed that among the inorganic fertilizers application of 175:95:80 kg NPK per ha recorded significantly maximum plant height (85.33 cm). Whereas maximum plant spread East-West (68.74 cm), North-South (70.14 cm), fresh yield per ha (15.18 t/ha), oil content (0.40 %) and eugenol content (60.69 %) was recorded in fertilizer level of 150:85:70 kg per ha. At harvest plant spaced at 45×30 cm recorded significantly maximum plant height (81.12 cm) and fresh yield per ha (15.72 t). Whereas, plants planted at wider spacing of 45×60 cm recorded significantly maximum plant spread East-West (68.74 cm), North-South (70.14 cm), oil content (0.30 %) and eugenol content (54.75 %).
