Fertilizers, particularly those containing nitrogen are the major inputs affecting the growth of barley crop. Therefore, the field experiment was conducted at Hawassa University College of Agriculture in 2019 cropping season. The objective of the study was to evaluate effect of nitrogen fertilizer level on growth response of food barley crop. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete randomized design (RCBD) with four replications having three treatments of nitrogen levels (0kg/ha, 23kg/ha, and 46kg/ha). The results showed that the highest leaf area index (3.621194) and crop growth rate (19.333gmm-2day-1) were recorded from 46kg/ha of nitrogen fertilizer rater. On the other hand, nitrogen fertilizer rate has no statically significant effect on total dry biomass of barley crop.
