A three years field experiment was conducted under Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK), Baksa during 2018-19,2019-20, 2020-21 to evaluate the productivity enhancement of Cabbage through Nutrientmanagement inMain and Ratoon crop. The results revealed that treatment with 100% recommended fertilizer dose (RFD)in Main crop and 50% RFD in Ratoon crop was found to contribute more yield attributing parameters andfinal yield in cabbage cultivation among all other treatments. The yield attributing parameters in respect toaverage head weight (816 g), average head diameter (18.20 cm) and days to sprouting (5.1 days) weremore in 50% RFD ratoon crop in comparison to 25% RFD in ratoon crop (626 g, 16.30 cm and 8.2 days)and farmers practices (597g, 13.40 cm and 10.7 days) respectively. Treatment with 100% RFD in Maincrop and 50% RFD in Ratoon crop contributed highest final average yield (45.60 t h-1) with B:C ratio (3.52)in comparison to (39.33 t h-1 and 3.33) (25t h-1 and 2.77) in 100% RFD in Main crop and 25% RFD in Ratooncrop and farmers practices respectively. The Net return (489.94 000h-1) achieved from 100% RFD in Maincrop and 50% RFD in Ratoon crop was also found highest as compared to other two treatments(Rs. 412.70000h-1) and (Rs. 239.73 000h-1) respectively.
