An experiment was carried out in bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L.var.grossum sendt.) to study the influence of fertigation levels and different spacings on yield and yield attributes under polyhouse condition.The perusal of the data revealed that widely spaced (45 cm x 60 cm) plants produced the highest number of fruits plant-1 (13.75), fruit girth (25.23 cm) and fruit yield plant-1 (1.53 kg) while fruit yield m-2 (8.92 kg) was the highest for closely spaced (45 cm x 30 cm) plants. Yield and yield attributes were significantly influenced by fertigation levels. Among the fertigation levels, 100 % adhoc recommendation of KAU for precision farming (230: 25: 250 N, P2O5 and K2O kg ha-1) registered the highest number of fruits plant-1(15.15), fruit girth (26.24 cm), fruit yield plant-1 (1.72 kg) and fruit yield m-2 (8.30 kg).
