Low canola yield is a common problem in Pakistan. In this context, introduction of improved varieties and suitable fertilization methods may offer a solution. Thus, a field experiment was conducted to assess the yield response of canola genotypes to different nitrogen regimes. The experiment was Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with split plots having three replications. Two canola varieties, Zahoor and PARC were randomized in main plots while two nitrogen (N) application methods, soil and foliar with an unamended control were randomized in sub plots. The seeds were sown on 28th November. The yield was statistically different across the varieties and N application methods. Zahoor than PARC produced maximum biological yield (4676.9 kg ha-1) and seed yield (1520.1 kg ha-1). Whilst soil application of N was superior to foliar application for biological yield (5443.1 kg ha-1) and seed yield (1613.4 kg ha-1). However, interactions between varieties and N application methods had also significant effects on the yields. The soil N application to the both varieties gave the maximum yields. Therefore, it is concluded that the soil application of N to the varieties, Zahoor and PARC could be more effective to maximize yield under agro ecological conditions of Mardan.
