Abstract: The effect of spacing distance on the growth and yield of cauliflower (Brassica oleracea L.) was studied under the Agro climatic conditions of the Vegetable Research Farm of the Department of Horticulture, Faculty of Agriculture, UdaiPratap Autonomous College, at Varanasi (U.P.) during year (2012-2013). Varanasi is situated between 25015’ North latitude and 60003’ East longitude. It has subtropical climate. The city is elevated about 129.23 meters above mean sea levels. Three spacing distance between rows (S1=30cm, S2=43cm, S3=60cm) were used in this study. The avoidance of struggle for existence much depends upon placing the plants at proper distance so that they may get sufficient light and air for their proper growth and maintenance. Under this experiment, spacing 30, 45, 60 cm were given to the cauliflower plants to find out the most suitable distance at which they should be placed to grow well and yield the maximum the distance at which the least value of each growth characters was obtained, was taken as standard to compare with the values obtained with regards to the particular growth characters at other distance to find out the significant effect at placing. Thus the fresh weight of plant, fresh weight of leaves, dry weight of leaves and height of plant were found to have been significant effect at spacing 30 and 60 cm of the plant, spacing of 45 and 60 cm were found to have significant effect on fresh weight of plant, fresh and dry weight of leaves. Observation made at 20 days stage it was noted that spacing of 60 cm had significant effect on fresh weight of fresh and dry weight of leaves. At 40 days stage significant effect of 60 cm distance was observed on height of the plant, fresh weight of plant, fresh and dry weight of leaves. At 60 days stage significant effect at 60cm distance it was note that the height of the plant, fresh weight of plant, fresh weight of leaves and dries weight of leaves. At 80 days stage significant effect at 60cm distance was obtained on height of plant, fresh weight of plant, fresh weight of leaves and dry weight of leaves.
