This article explores the pattern and growth of fertilizers consumption in Dharwad and Davangere district over a period of years. Tabular analysis was used for analysing consumption pattern of NPK fertilizers in Dharwad and Davangere district. Compound growth rate analysis was used to know the growth of NPK consumption over a period of years. The findings of the study indicated that NPK usage pattern in Dharwad district had negative growth rate (-5.77%) over the years (2004-2015). Amongst all the three major nutrients, usage of phosphatic fertilizer showed highest negative growth (-7.70%) followed by nitrogen (-3.95%) and potassic fertilizer (-3.39%). In Davangere district, it was observed that usage of nitrogenous (5.38%) and phosphatic (3.07%) fertilizers had positive growth rates. But, potassic fertilizer showed negative growth rate (-0.66%).It was noticed that farmers using more than Recommended Dose of Fertilizer under irrigated condition in case of maize, Bt cotton, soybean and paddy were high as compared to rainfed conditions.

Keywords: Fertilizer consumption pattern, Compound annual growth rate, Recommended dose of fertilizer.
