Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at experimental station of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj Faizabad, U.P. to assess the impact of economic profitability and yield of African marigold through various levels of planting geometry and pinching. The treatment comprises with three level of manual pinching i.e. 30, 40, 50 days after transplanting and two level of spacing i.e. 50 x 40 cm and 50 x 50 cm. the experiment was planned under Factorial Randomize Block Design with four replication. The acceptance of any agricultural recommendation is mainly depending on its benefit: cost ratio. Number of flower/plant, yield of flower/plant (kg), Yield of flower (q/ha), gross income (Rs. /ha), net profit (Rs. /ha) and benefit: cost ratio was recorded and analysed during the experiment. The maximum yield of flower/plant (0.50 kg), yield of flower/bed (14.94kg), yield of flower/ha (250 q/ha), highest net return (Rs.150000) and benefit: cost ratio (1:1.86) were significantly registered with (P1S1) closer spacing of 50 x40 cm and 40 days pinching after transplanting.
