Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at experimental Farm, Division of Vegetable Science, SKUAST-Kashmir during two consecutive years of 2016 and 2017. The experiment comprised of thirteen treatments which was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. The objective of this research was to determine the influence of nutrient sources on quality attributes in a brinjal-fenugreek cropping sequence. Observations for quality attributes were recorded for both the main crop-brinjal as well as the succeeding crop- fenugreek. The treatment T6 (7.5t FYM+ 1.5t VC+ 1.5t PM+ 5t SM + 4t DW ha-1) outperformed all other treatments except T9 under study in terms of enhancing quality features in both the main crop and succeeding crop. After threadbare discussion of the study it was observed that the treatment T9 (50% RFD + 50% PM) recorded a maximum nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and protein content for the main crop which proved to be significantly superior to all other treatments. It was further observed that treatment T12 receiving the nutrients through chemical fertilizers only recorded poor performance in terms of quality parameters of both the main crop and succeeding crop.
