The present study was conducted during the Rabi season of 2007-08 and 2008-09 at Agricultural Farm of Shri Durga Ji Post Graduate College, Chandeshwar, Azamgarh (UP), India with the objectives to find out suitable variety and dose of phosphorus to improve production, quality and economics of pea. The treatments consisted of four varieties (Malviya-2, Aparna, Sapana and Rachana) and dose of Phosphorus (0, 20, 40, 60 and 80 kg/ha) were laid out in Randomized Block Design and replicated three times. The results observed that the Sapana variety gave significantly more produced grain yield, protein content in grain and economics viz. grass income, more net income and B:C ratio over rest varieties in average of two years study. The application of phosphorus @80 kg/ha produced higher gain yield, protein content in grin, gross income net return and benefit cost ratio which is at par with the application of phosphorus @ 60 kg/ha. Therefore, applied Sapana variety along with 100 kg/ha phosphorus proved to be grain yield, protein percentage in grain, gross income, net return and benefit cost ratio of pea on the mean basis of two year study, respectively
