Abstract: An experiment was conducted to investigate the influence of fresh jute leaves as a source of plant nutrients on late jute seed production. Fresh jute leaves were collected just after harvest of jute crop and was incorporated to the soil at the rate of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 percent along with a recommended dose of chemical fertilizer (Urea-TSP-MP-Gypsum-Zincsulphate - Borax at the rate of 200-100-40-100-22-10 kg ha‾1 respectively). With the increasing rate of fresh jute leaves pH of the soil successively decreased from 6.47 to 6.31 and organic matter content of the soil increased from 2.45 to 48.36 % and nutrient contents in soil was also increased and of N, P, K and S were increased upto 47.36,53.00, 62.50 and 55.55 percent respectively. A highly significant increase in number of branch, number of pod and seed yield was obtained with 4,5 and 10 percent of fresh jute leaves and a spectacular increase was also found with 1,2 and 3 percent of fresh jute leaves. The seed yield was significantly correlated with number of branches, number of seeds and number of pods per plant.
