Abstract: Sweet corn cultivation can contribute in diversifying cropping pattern. Performance of sweet corn varieties was evaluated under different fertility levels. Treatment consisted four sweet corn varieties viz., Bajaura sweet corn, Sugar 75, Win Orange and Priya and three levels of fertilizers (90-40, 120-50 and 130-60 kg N-P2O5 ha-1). Highest values of yield attributing parameters, green cob (9.00 t ha–1), green fodder yield (20.96 t ha–1), net return (68189 ` ha–1 and B C ratio (2.19) were obtained with Sugar 75. For sweet corn, application of 120 kg N + 50 kg P ha–1 significantly improved yield attributing parameters, green cob (4.17 t ha–1) and green fodder (6.25 t ha–1) yield and proved economically profitable dose with highest net returns (54212 ` ha–1) and BC ratio (2.05).
