The response of the three romaine lettuce cultivars to nitrogen fertigation by drip system was investigated in the field experiment carried out in 2009-2010 on the very light soil at Kruszyn Krajeński near Bydgoszcz. The trial was established as one-factorial trial with four replications. The studied factor was cultivar: ‘Barracuda', ‘Chiquina' i ‘Romora'. Fertigation was conducted with the use of proportional mixing dispenser. The use of drip irrigation connected with nitrogen fertigation enabled the proper growth and development as well as valuable yielding of plants on the very light soil, in the region of low rainfall amounts during the vegetation period. From among the three cultivars tested, ‘Barracuda' was cha-racterized by the highest: yield, head weight and dry matter content.
