An investigation was carried out to study the effects of boron (0, 1, 2 and 3 kg/ha) and nitrogen (0, 50, 100 and 200 kg/ha) on the growth and yield of radish cv Pusa Rashmi. Various growth characters such as number, fresh weight and dry matter content of leaves, and length, girth, fresh weight and dry matter content of roots increased with increase in boron and nitrogen levels, the highest application of both nutrients giving the best results. Treatment combinations showed significant effects on fresh weight of leaves and roots, with the best results from 3 kg boron + 200 kg of nitrogen/ha.
