Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of graded levels of nitrogen and potassium on yield and nutrient content of watermelon grown in lateritic soils of Konkan region. The result were revealed that application of nitrogen with rational appliance of potassium doses significantly increases the average weight of fruits, number of fruits per plot and ultimately the yield of watermelon and crop was confirms highly responsiveness to it. The nutrient content of plant also illustrates the positive response on various characters. The best results were obtained at treatment T10 application of N: P2O5: K @ 150: 50: 100 kg ha-1 gave the maximum yield and was thus optimum fertilizer dose for lateritic soils of Konkan region of Maharashtra
