Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during kharif season 2018-2019 at the Forest Nursery and Research Centre, College of Forestry, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj study the “Effect on temperature and humidity and different sowing dates at growth and yield of safflower in Prayagraj condition”. In India, amid 2018-2019 the world, safflower is grown in 7, 52,000 ha with a total production of 6, 46,000 tons. India, Kazakhstan, Argentina, the United States and Mexico are leading producers of safflower grown for both seed and oil. India ranks first in Area (40%) and Production (29%) of the safflower grown across the world. In horticulture, heat units are regularly communicated as developing degree days (GDD). Now and then developing degree days are called developing degree units (GDU), however the two terms are indistinguishable. Ascertaining GDD for a particular day utilizes a basic equation that includes subtracting a base or limit temperature from the normal temperature through the afternoon. The base temperature is the limit temperature for which plant development starts. The soil of experimental plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 6.0), low in organic carbon (0.35%), available N (230 kg ha-1), available P (20 kg ha-1) and available K (189 kg ha-1). Experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three levels of Nitrogen [(100 kg ha-1), (120 kg ha-1) and (140kg ha-1)] and three levels of Sulphur (20 kg ha-1), (30 kg ha-1) and (40 kg ha-1). There were nine treatments each replicated three. The result showed that growth attributes viz., Plant height (72.36cm) at 120 DAS, flowering (41.13) at 90 DAS and pod per plant (39.60g) at 90 DAS whereas yield attributes and yield viz., Seed Germination (178.33), Test Weight (53.13), Pod per plant (39.600) and grain yield (34.76q/ha) was recorded highest with the application of 140 kg/ha and 40 kg/ha.
