In an experiment at Mohanpur, N at 90, 120 or 240 g/plant was applied to the foliage and soil in various combinations in addition to a basal dressing of 90 g P2O5 and 240 g K2O per plant. The best results with regard to plant growth, yield and fruit TSS and ascorbic acid contents were obtained when a total of 120 g N/plant was applied, 50% by foliar and 50% by soil application.
