Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted at Jimma University College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine (JUCAVM) Horticultural farm to evaluate the effect of different rate of nitrogen on the growth, yield and yield components of cabbage. Four nitrogen levels (0, 50, 100, and 150kg\ha) were used. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Copenhagen market variety of cabbage was used for this experiment. Result indicated that growth, yield and yield components of cabbage were significantly affected by different rates of applied nitrogen. Shortest days to maturity (61 days), longer plant and head height, wider head diameter (17.03), more outer leaf number (14.16), heavier total plant fresh weight (2.5kg/plant) and head weight (1.5kg/plant) and higher total yield were recorded at higher nitrogen fertilizer rate (150kg/ha). The result of current study revealed that 150kg/ha nitrogen fertilizer rate can be used for cabbage production in the study area. However further investigations may be suggested to be carried out on different soil type, at different season, year and location so as comes up with precise and comprehensive recommendation.
