Abstract: The experiment was conducted at Horticultural Farm, Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Bangladesh during the period from November 2008 to February 2009 to study the effect of phosphorus on growth and yield of carrot. Four levels of phosphorus viz., P0: 0 kg P2O5 ha (control), P1: 50 kg P2O5 ha, P2: 60 kg P2O5 ha and P3: 70 kg P2O5 ha using Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. Most of the characters including yield ha showed higher results for P3. The highest marketable yield (35.9 tha-1) was recorded from P3 whereas lowest (24.1 tha-1) from P0. It can be suggested to use 70 kg P2O5 per hectare for higher production of carrot.
