Jute seed scarcity in Bangladesh is a major problem for jute growers as jute and allied fibres are the most economic product for the country. Seed is a critical input for jute crop as it is not possible to get both the seed and fibre from the same crop. Organized late jute seed production is lacking in the whole country of Bangladesh. Therefore, updating seed production potential of jute was tested under Jute experimental station of Bangladesh Jute Research Institute. Following the strategy, additional nutrient response to O-9897 and O-72 (Chorcorus olitorius L.) in late jute seed production was assessed in Jute Agriculture Experimental Station (JAES), Manikganj, Bangladesh during the late Jute season. A highly significant effect was observed for plant height, number of branches/plant, number of pods/plant, number of seeds/pod and seed yield with the application of increasing doses of NPK fertilizer. Significantly high seed yields were found with the application of additional 25% NP or 25% NPK with existing recommended doses of fertilizer for late jute seed production for the varieties.
