Abstract: Adequate quantities of plant nutrients are required to promote proper crop growth with view to achieve success in vegetable production. A field experiment was conducted on response of chinese cabbage to different doses of nitrogen and phosphorus levels. The aim of this research was to assess the performance of two fertilizers in different doses for growth, yield and quality of chinese cabbage. Analysis of variance showed significant differences among the treatments for all the traits. The maximum number of outer leaves, head length, head width, total head weight, net head weight and head yield were obtained with the application of 120kg N/ha and 100kg P/ha .Where as the maximum plant height, plant spread, leaf area and head diameter were recorded with the application of 140kgN/ha and 120kgP/ha. From the experiment, suggested that the application of 120kg nitrogen /ha and 100kg P/ha are best for obtaining higher production in chinese cabbage in the Gangetic plains of West Bengal.
