Abstract: In the present study, a 2 year field experiment was conducted at the Regional Agricultural Research Station, BARI, Hathazari, Bangladesh in the year 2000-2001 and 2001-2002 on the fertilizer requirement for carrot as influenced by different levels of NPKS and Cowdung. Six combinations of NPKS and Cowdung were used in this investigation. Different combinations of NPKS and Cowdung showed significance influence on yield of carrot. The combination of fertilizer 120-45-120-30 kg ha-1 of NPKS and 5 t ha-1 cowdung produced the highest root yield of 27.22 t ha-1 which was 303% higher over control treatment. The highest marginal rate of return (7633%) also obtained from the same treatment.
