Abstract: The present study was carried out at UTP, Habak, Division of Vegetable Science, SKUAST-Kashmir during 2013-14 to standardize the mother root size, spacing and umbel order to improve seed production in carrot for maximizing economic returns.

Maximum net returns of Rs. 1236812.76 ha-1were recorded with the use of small steckling size i.e. Z4 (75-100 g) and closest spacing i.e. S1 (60 cm × 30 cm) with benefit cost ratio of 5.26.
