Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during the rabi season of 2016-17 at College Farm, Navsari Agriculture University, Navsari, Gujarat to study the Effect of sowing dates and crop spacing on growth, yield and quality of linseed. The treatments comprised of 4 sowing dates, Viz. D1: 3rd week of October, D2: 4th week of October, D3: 1st week of November and D4: 2nd week of November in main plots and 3 spacing (S1: 20 cm x 5 cm, S2: 30 cm x 5 cm and S3: 40 cm x 5 cm) in sub-plots, replicated four times in a split plot design. Sowing dates as well as spacing significantly affected growth characters, yield attributes, yield, oil yield and Economics. The results of the experiment showed significantly higher plant height (59.62 cm), number of branches/plant (9.78), number of seeds/capsule (6.62), test weight (6.61 g), seed yield (1272 kg/ha), stover yield (2908 kg/ha), oil yield (476 kg/ha) and accrued highest net realization (₹ 73,252/ha) with BCR (4.47) were recorded in sowing on 1st week of November (D3). Sowing of linseed with narrow spacing S1 (20 cm x 5 cm) was recorded significantly higher plant height (59.62 cm), seed yield (1262 kg/ha), stover yield (2976 kg/ha), oil yield (471 kg/ha) and also reported maximum net realization (₹ 72,565/ha) with BCR (4.43).
