A field trial was conducted during the period from October, 2013 to January, 2015 to study the effect of nitrogen and phosphorus on growth and quality of Bermuda lawn grass (Cynodon dactylon) cv. Selection-1 and to determine the most suitable dose for establishment and maintenance of a quality lawn. In the present investigation three levels of nitrogen viz., 10, 20 and 30 g/m2, three levels of phosphorus viz., 5, 10 and 15 g/m2 and a fixed dose of potassium viz., 5 g/m2 were tried along with untreated control (viz., N0P0 and K0) comprising of 10 different combinations. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium were applied as urea (46.0 % N), single super phosphate (16.0 % P2O5), and muriate of potash (60.0 %) respectively.
