An experiment was laid out in a factorial randomized block design (FRBD) with four replications. In this experiment three varieties (V1 : GI-1, V2 : HI-5 and V3 : Niharika) with two fertilizer levels ( L1 :50:25:00, L2 : 100: 50: 00 NPK kg/ha) were used. The observations on different morphological characters viz., Growth studies, dry matter studies, days required for different growth stages, yield attributes and yield along with the nutrient uptake was recorded. The studies revealed that among the three genotypes, variety Niharika responded well to fertilizer level resulting in significant increase in growth, yield contributing characters and yield of the crop. Further it was found that application of fertilizer dose of 100:25 NP kg/ha recorded numerically higher values for growth, yield and quality characters and it was statistically found at par with 50:25 NP kg/ha fertilizer dose. Therefore, the application of 50:25 NP kg/ha dose to Niharika genotype would result to achieve higher Isabgol yield rather than 100:25 NP kg/ha dose.
