Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at Department of Agricultural Meteorology Research Farm, College of Agriculture, Pune during kharif, 2019 with an objective of evaluating the effect of sowing date, variety and their interaction on growth, yield of fenugreek. Experiment was laid out in a split plot design with three replications. There were sixteen treatment combinations comprising of four varieties (Phule Kasturi, RMT-1, Methi Extra Bold and Local Variety) as main plot treatment and four sowing dates (26, 27, 28 and 29MW) as sub plot treatment. The gross and net plot sizes were 3.0m × 2.0m and 2.6m × 1.8m, respectively. Among the four cultivars of table purpose fenugreek, Phule Kasturi recorded significantly higher growth components. Sowing of table purpose fenugreek during different sowing windows significantly influenced the growth and yield parameters. The growth attributing characters were favourably influenced when fenugreek sown during 26th meteorological week. From this investigation, it was concluded that table purpose fenugreek variety Phule Kasturi when sown during 26 MW (25th June -1st July) favourably influenced growth and yield contributing characters.
