The experiment was conducted at experimental area of Student’s Experimental Farm, Department of Agronomy, Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam during 2017-18 to assess the influence of macro nutrients (N and P) on growth and yield of barely for ix fertilizer level and two barely varieties (Clipper and Local variety) in a three replicated randomized complete block design. The results showed that maximum tillers per plant (236 m2), plant height (109.2 cm), spike length (16.8 cm), grains spike-1 (33.00), seed index (51.4 g) and grain yield (3153 kg ha-1) were recorded by Clipper variety. However, the fertilizer levels expressed that maximum tillers (251 m2), plant height (118.9 cm), spike length (18.4 cm), grains spike-1 (35), seed index (57.7 g) and grain yield (3159 kg ha-1) were noted in F6 = 80-40 NP kg ha-1. In case of interaction, Clipper variety x F6 = 80-40 NP kg ha-1 produced maximum tillers (268 m2), plant height (124.3 cm), spike length (21.3 cm), grains spike-1 (37), seed index (59.0 g) and grain yield (3283 kg ha-1). However, local variety × F1 = 00 (No fertilizer) manifested minimum tillers (206 m2), plant height (83.9 cm), spike length (9.4 cm), grains spike-1 (26), seed index (38.3 g) and grain yield (2755 kg ha-1). It was concluded that growth and yield, particularly grain yield was considerably affected by fertilizer levels. It was indorsed that Clipper × F6 = 80-40 NP kg ha-1 was suitable combination for getting more and more yield of barley crop.
