Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted during kharif 2019 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P.) on sandy loam soil. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design consisting of 3 replications and 10 treatments comprising of three spacings (30 cm x 30 cm, 40 cm x 40 cm and 50 cm x 50 cm) and three fertilizer levels (50% RDF, 75% RDF and 100% RDF) which are compared with control plot. The results showed in growth attributing parameters viz., plant height (113.81 cm), number of leaves per hill (96.56), Leaf Area Index (11.26), number of tillers per hill (14.56), plant dry weight (101.80 g/hill), crop growth rate (13.03 g/m2/day), relative growth rate (0.039 g/g/day) and grain yield (4571.32 kg/ha) were recorded maximum with spacing of 50 cm x 50 cm + 100% RDF.
