Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Zaid season 2018 to investigate “Impact of spacing and levels of Nitrogen on the growth and yield of stevia (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni)” under eastern Uttar Pradesh conditions. The research was conducted using Randomized Block Design (RBD) replicated thrice, which comprised of two factors. The first factor was dosage of the nitrogen with three levels i.e., 50, 75, 100 kg N ha-1. The second factor was different inter row spacing i.e., 30cm x 20cm, 40cm x 20cm and 50cm x 20cm. The results showed that the growth and yield attributes have been found to be significantly affected by different treatments. Application of 100 kg ha-1 Nitrogen with 50cm x 20cm spacing recorded significantly higher plant height and number of branches. The total fresh leaf yield and fresh stem yield per hectare increased significantly with application of 100 kg ha-1 Nitrogen with 30cm x 20cm spacing.
