The experiments were conducted in three hill district of Bangladesh (CHTs) i.e Bandarban, Khagrachari and Rangamati under the AEZ 29 (Northern and Eastern Hills Tract) during November 2017 to March 2019 to study the Effect of lime on the yield performance Cabbage, Cauliflower, Tomato, Chili and Brinjal in the hill valley soil. The experiment was designed on Randomized Completely Block Design (RCBD) with two treatments and three replication. The treatments consider as Lime 2t/ha instead of farmers practice. In valley acidic soil cabbage, tomato, chilli, brinjal and cauliflower were grown with lime application @ 2t/ha. Yield of cabbage varied from 49.36-57.23t/ha. Highest yield of cabbage (57.23t/ha) was found at Bandarban site instead of farmer practice. Yield of chili was ranged from 9.93 to 18.21ton/ha. Highest chilli yield (18.21t/ha) was recorded from Bandarban Site. Yield of brinjal was ranged from 54.43 to 56.67ton/ha. The highest brinjal yield 56.67t/ha at Khagrachari and tomato yield 55.39t/ha was found at Bandarban Site. Yield of cauliflower was ranged from 44.55 to 52.65ton/ha, where highest yield (52.65t/ha) of cauliflower was recorded from the field of Khagrachari site and lowest yield of cauliflower was recorded 44.55 ton/ha in Bandarban site instead of farmer practice.
