Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Effect of land configuration with different levels of Spacing and fertilizers on yield and economic studies of onion (allium cepa L.) Cultivation,” was conducted at experimental farm, Department of Horticulture, V.N.M.K.V., Parbhani during rabi season of 2017-2018. There were three factors studied in this experiment one major factor viz., A) Land configuration include two levels (P1- Flat Beds and P2- Raised beds) and two sub factors viz., A) Spacing include three levels (S1- 15x7.5cm, S2- 15x10cm and S3-15x15cm) and B) Fertilizers Include three levels (F1- 75:50:50, F2-100:50:50 and F3- 125:75:75kg NPK/ha). Overall there were eighteen treatment combinations. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with two replications. The results revealed that maximum weight of fresh bulb and weight of cured bulb recorded with raised bed configuration (P2) at 15x15 cm spacing (S3) and 125:75:75 kg NPK/ha (F3). While, the significantly highest yield per plot, yield per hectare and economical parameters viz. gross monetary return, net monetary return and benefit: cost ratio recorded with raised bed configuration (P2) at 15x7.5 cm spacing (S3) and 125:75:75 kg NPK/ha (F3). However, the minimum values of all these characters were noted with flatbed configuration (P1) and 75:50:50 kg NPK/ha (F1).
