Abstract:
Field experiment entitled “To assess the effect of spacing on growth and yield of carrot (<em>Daucus carota </em>L.) Cv. Pusa kesar” 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 <em>viz</em>. - 8 x 10 cm, 8 x 20 cm and 8 x 30 cm. Experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with factorial concept with three replications. Plant spacing of 8 x 30 cm caused significant influence on growth parameters such as height of the plant, number of leaves per plant, yield and yield attribute were also affected by plant spacing. Wider spacing (8 x 30cm) was found highly significant on all growth and yield attributes, however maximum root yield <em>i.e.</em>113.45q/ha was obtained when plant spacing <em>i.e.</em> 8 x 30 cm was kept.
