Author(s): CH Shanmukhi, MLN Reddy, AVD Dorajee Rao and P Anji Babu
Abstract: The var. Abhinav recorded the lowest number of days taken to first and fifty percent flowering (39.03 days), (59.40 days) with highest number of flowers per cluster (6.71) and highest fruit yield per plant (26.56 kg). Planting density at 75 cm x 40 cm (S3) recorded significantly the lowest number of days taken to first and fifty percent flowering (40.03 days), (59.00 days) followed by 60 cm x 60 cm (S2) were as the highest number of days taken to first flowering (41.05 days) and fifty percent flowering (61.70 days) were observed in 120 cm x 40 cm (S1). Application of 180N: 90P: 90K kg per ha (F3) recorded the highest number of days taken to first flowering (45.20 days) and fifty percent flowering (66.01 days), with highest number of flowers per cluster (6.87) and also obtained highest fruit yield per plant (29.70 kg) were as the lowest was observed in lower fertigation levels.
