The experiment focuses the optimum utilization of irrigation water and fertilizer application on Jute seed production. Four irrigation treatments and four nitrogen doses were tested on jute (var. O-9897) in Jute Agriculture Experimental Station (JAES), Manikganj, Bangladesh during the late Jute season. The highest seed yield of 745.50 kg/ha was obtained from 30 days of irrigation with the application of 100kg N/ha. The lowest seed yield 236.75 kg/ha was obtained from no irrigation and no fertilizer application. Irrigation at 45 days and 30 and 60 (twice irrigation) days didn’t show better seed yield compared to 30 days of irrigation treatment.
