Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of spacing and mulching on growth, yield and quality of sprouting broccoli. The broccoli cultivar Palam Samridhi comprised the plant material for investigation. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The experiments were consisted three spacing (45 x 30 cm, 45 x 45 cm, 45 x 60 cm) and four mulching (FYM, Black polythene mulch, White polythene mulch and no mulch). The data were recorded on various growth, yield and quality parameters. Results revealed that the application of black polythene mulch with wider spacing (45 x 60 cm) proved to be most effective in increasing the vegetative growth and quality characters of sprouting broccoli while, narrow spacing (45 x 30 cm) with black polythene mulch induces the higher yield of sprouting broccoli under Punjab conditions in terms of growth, yield and biochemical characters.
