The experiment was conducted at Spices Research Sub-Centre, Faridpur during Rabi season 2013-14 and 2014-2015 to determine the effects of different row spacing (S1=20, S2=30 and S3= 40 cm) and phosphorus applications (P0=0, P1=30, P2= 60 and P3=90 kg ha-1) on the yield and yield attributes of fenugreek. The two factor experiment was arranged in Completely Randomized Block Design with three replications. Phosphorus fertilizer applications positively affected all the traits examined except for 1st pod height, pod length and thousand seed weight. In 2013-14 the highest yield (2233 kg/ha) was obtained from 30 cm spacing with 90 kg P/ha. The lowest yield (733 kg/ha) was obtained from S3P0 (40 cm spacing with control). In 2014-15 the row spacing of 20 cm and phosphorus dose of 90 kg/ha gave the highest yield (2033 kg/ha). The lowest yield (7000 kg/ha) was obtained from 40 cm spacing with 0 kg P/ha.
