Abstract:
Sweet flag (<em>Acorus calamus</em> Linn.) that belongs to family Araceae, is an important<strong></strong>medicinal and aromatic plant. The field experiment for three consecutive years with 9 treatments, three levels of spacing <em>viz</em>., S1 – 60 x 30cm, S2 – 60 x 45 cm and S3 – 60 x 60 cm and three levels of farm yard manure viz., F1– FYM 5 t/ha, F2– FYM 10 t/ha and F3 – 15 t/ha was laid in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The results of the experiment indicated that the application of FYM 15 t/ha in combination with plants at a spacing of 60 x 30 cm recorded significantly higher growth and yield compared to other treatments.
