Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during rainy season of 2016 at Instructional Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur to ascertain suitable popcorn variety and its fertility level. Treatment consisted four popcorn varieties viz., V L Amber popcorn, BPCH-6, V L popcorn-1 and Jawahar popcorn-11 and four fertility levels viz., 90 + 30, 110 + 40, 130 + 50 and 150 + 60 kg N + P2O5 ha-1. The soil of experimental site was having medium fertility status. The results indicated that highest values of growth, yield attributing parameters, grain (17.97 q/ha), stover yield (24.47 q/ha) and net return (` ₹157495/ha) were obtained with variety BPCH-6. Application of 130 + 50 kg N + P2O5/ha improved growth, yield components consequently grain (17.76 q/ha), stover (27.44 q/ha) over rest of the fertility levels and proved economically beneficial with net return (` ₹155058/ha).
