Abstract:
This experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2016-17 at research farm of AKS University, Sherganj, Satna, to assess the effect of sowing dates and plant spacing on growth and root yield of radish (Raphanus sativus L). The experiment consisting of nine treatment combination with three replications was laid out in randomized block design. Growth parameter differed significantly at all the stages of crop growth. Maximum plant height (32.26 cm.), number of leaves per plant (14.87cm), were recorded with sowing dates of 25 October. Maximum length of root (34.89 cm), diameter of root (16.04 cm), root yield (32.25 t/ha) were recorded with sowing dates of 25 October. Sowing dates of 25th October with plant spacing of 40x15cm increased the growth and yield of radish. Highest net return of Rs 79320 with B:C ratio of 2.59 was also found with sowing dates of 25th October. It was observed that plant spacing of 40x15 cm significantly improve growth and yield of radish.
