Abstract Rice requires plenty of fertilizer to grow and yield properly. But poor management of nitrogenous fertilizer is one of the main obstacles to enhancing the production of late T. aman rice in Bangladesh. To overcome such conditions, an investigation was conducted at the Agronomy Field Laboratory, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, from July to December 2020 to evaluate the impact of cultivars as well as nitrogen on the growth and grain performance of late T. aman rice. The research conducted at RCBD with five nitrogen levels: 0 kg N ha-1, 35 kg N ha-1, 42 kg N ha-1, 49 kg N ha-1 and 56 kg N ha-1 on three cultivars (BR22, BR23 and BRRI dhan46). Fertilizers were treated per plot by recommendations and every treatment of the study was repeated three times. Results showed that cultivars and nitrogen levels substantially impacted the growth and grain output of late T. aman rice. The maximum number of total tillers (14.66), effective tillers (13.66) and seed output (5.94 t h-1) were recorded at BR23. The maximum effective tiller (13.33), panicle length (26.00 cm), grain panicle-1 (14.66), as well as seed output (5.93 t ha-1) were recorded in 42 kg nitrogen. The maximum seed output (5.93 t ha-1) was recorded at the coupling with BR23 with 42 kg nitrogen and the least (3.36 t ha-1) was recorded in treatment combining BR22 with 0 kg nitrogen. The current study found that applying 42 kg of nitrogen is the optimum level for enhancing BR23 growth as well as production.
