From November 18 to March 6, 2019, researchers at BAPARD Agricultural Farm in Kotalipara, Gopalganj, investigated the impact of fertilizers on lentil (Lens culinaris L.) production and yield components. This research will aid in determining the correct fertilizer dosage for lentil growing. As a consequence, fertilizer waste may be avoided, lentil yields can be raised, and farmers can profit financially. T1, T2, and T3 treatments were used, as well as BARI masur-6, BARI masur-7, and masur-9 variations. 45kg Urea, 90kg TSP, 45kg MoP, 55kg Gypsum, 03 kg Zinc Sulphate, and 5 tons of cow dung per acre were the suggested fertilizer dosages. The number of branches per plant, pods per plant, seed per pod, 100 seed weight (gm), and seed production (kg/ha) all rose. BARI masur-6, BARI masur-7, and BARI masur-9, respectively, measured 41.50 cm, 38.10 cm, 43.66 cm, and 27.80, 14.00, 12.80 cm in height and number of branches per plant. The greatest number of pods per plant, seed output (kg/ha.), and 100 seed weight (gm) were 74.20, 67.00, 41.00; 2.78, 2.51, 2.76; 2442.30, 2206.39, and 1665.72, respectively. However, the current study revealed that with the combined application of fertilizers, several growth indices and seed yield of lentil (Lens culinaris L.) increased progressively.
