Abstract:
Field experiment entitled “To find out the best planting distance on growth and tuber yield of potato (<em>Solanum tuberosum</em> L.)” Variety Kufri lauvkar have been conducted at the research farm of AKS University, Sherganj Satna. During rabi season of 2015-16. Experiment comprised of three level of spacing’s viz.,- 60 x 10 cm, 60 x 20 cm and 60 x 30 cm. Experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (with factorial concept) with three replications. 60 x 20 cm plant spacing caused significant effect on growth parameters such as height of the plant, number of main stem/hill, stem diameter (mm), yield and yield attribute were also affected by plant spacing i.e. total number of tuber, number of big size tuber and total tuber yield q/ha. It was observed that the earthing up at 30 DAP showed superior performance in most of the growth and yield parameters. Therefore, 30 cm plant spacing for better growth and higher tuber yield.
