Abstract: The present investigation entitled Effect of nitrogen level on growth and yield Attributing character of radish (Raphanus sativus L.) cv. Pusa Chetki ” was carried out during Rabi season in the year 2023-24 at Research plot of Department of Vegetable Science at Rama University Kanpur. The experiment was laid out in Randomised Block Design with eight treatments randomized thrice. Pusa Chetki variety was taken to study best suitable combination of Nitrogen to get highest yield in radish. The Different Nitrogen level used viz., N0 (Control); N1 (60 kg Nitrogen/ha); N2 (80 kg Nitrogen/ha); N3 (100 kg Nitrogen/ha); N4 (120 kg Nitrogen/ha); N5 (140 kg Nitrogen/ha); N6 (160 kg Nitrogen/ha) and N7 (180 kg Nitrogen/ha). It is observed from the investigation that the treatment N4- 120 kg Nitrogen/ha gave the highest growth and yield parameters viz., Plant height at 15 DAS, 30 DAS and at harvest (13.84,26.50 and 65.10 cm), number of leaves per plant at 15 DAS, 30 DAS and at harvest(6.72,9.84 and 17.10), Fresh weight of leaves at 15 DAS, 30 DAS and at harvest (44.10,83.28 and 118.32 gm), Leaf area per plant at 15DAS, 30 DAS and at harvest (41.20,132.54 and 170.64 cm2), Length of leaves at harvesting (38.22 cm), Root length (26.78 cm), Root girth (12.10 cm), Average plant weight at Harvesting (224.15 gm), Fresh root weight (150.45 gm/plant), Yield per plot (34.15 kg) and Yield per hectare (376.52 q) respectively. While, the minimum results were found under N0 (Control) for all the parameters. So, we can suggest to farmers that the dose of 120 kg Nitrogen/ha gave the better results in term of growth and yield of Radish.
