Effect of different spacing and fertilizer levels on yield and economics of beetroot (Beta vulgaris L.)

Author(s): VD Kadam, SJ Shinde and DC Satav
Abstract: A field experiment was carried out at Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, V. N. M. K. V. Parbhani. The field experiment was carried out in Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) with three replication during the Rabi season, 2017. Treatment consisted of three levels of spacing S1 (15cm ×15cm), S2 (20cm×15cm) and S3 (30cm×15cm) and three levels of fertilizers F1 (100% RDF), F2 (125% RDF)and F3 (150% RDF). The experiment was conducted in Factorial Randomized Block design with nine treatment combinations, replicated thrice. Variety “Ruby Queen” was selected for the study. The significant effect of the spacing and fertilizer levels were observed for number of leaves per plant, length of root (cm), weight of root per plant (g), weight of root per plot (kg), weight of root per hectare (q), yield per plot (kg), yield per ha (q) and B:C ratio. Yield characters like length of root (15.61 cm), weight of root per plant (152.80 g), weight of root per plot (10.55 kg) and weight of root per hectare (258.18q) were observed maximum with the treatments S3 (30cm×15cm) and yield characters like length of root (16.57 cm), weight of root per plant (170.84 g), weight of root per plot (10.37 kg) and weight of root per hectare (289.26 q) were observed maximum with the treatments F3 (150% RDF).The yield per plot (8.23 kg) and yield per ha (290.60 q) were observed maximum with the treatments S1 (15cm×15cm) and yield per plot (7.72 kg) and yield per ha (280.77 q) were observed maximum with the treatments F3 (150% RDF). The benefit cost ratio was found significantly superior over rest of the treatments S1 (15cm×15cm) with (2.30) and (2.15) with F3 (150% RDF) treatments.
