Abstract:
Safed Musli <em>var.</em> ASM1 has been evaluated at three spacing and vermicompost fertilizer level to determine its yield potential at BAU, Ranchi. Average number of fleshy root per plant was found maximum (19.8) at 30 cm spacing and 15 q/ha vermicompost, while minimum (9.4) at 45 cm spacing and 10 q/ha vermicompost level. Average length of fleshy root was found maximum (11.9 cm) at 30 cm spacing level and 10 q/ha as well as 15 q/ha vermicompost level, however its minimum value (3.7 cm) was observed both at (15 cm &amp; 10q/ha) as well as in (45 cm &amp; 20 q/ha). Average diameter of fleshy roots was found maximum (0.9 cm) both at 30 cm &amp; 45 cm spacing levels having 15q/ha vermicompost application. Similarly minimum value was observed both at 30 cm and 45 cm spacing levels and at 15 q/ha vermicompost application level. Average fresh weight of fleshy root per plant was found maximum (75.5 g) at 30 cm spacing and 15 q/ha vermicompost level and minimum (43.2 g) at 15 cm spacing and 10 q/ha. Similarly average productivity of fleshy roots (g/m<sup>2</sup>) was calculated maximum (87.58) at 30 cm spacing &amp; 15 q/ha and minimum (49.87) at 15 cm spacing &amp; 10 q/ha fertilization level. Average fresh yield of fleshy roots was calculated maximum (9.83 q/ha) at 30 cm spacing &amp; 15 q/ha and minimum (15.62 q/ha) at 15 cm spacing &amp; 10 q/ha).
