Effect of spacing on growth and yield of linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) varieties

SR Gaikwad, SA Bhusari, SG Mane and VP Suryavanshi
A field experiment was conducted during the rabi season 2016-2017 0n vertisol at Oilseed Research Station, Latur. To asses the response of linseed varieties to different spacing and fertilizer levels. The experiment was laid out in a factorial randomized block design with eighteen treatment combinations, consisting of two varieties of NL-260 (V1) and LSL-93 (V2), three spacing’s viz., 30 cm x 5 cm (S1), 45 cm x 5 cm (S2), 30 cm x 10 cm (S3) and three fertilizer levels viz. 50% RDF (F1), 100% RDF (F2) and 150% RDF (F3) replicated twice. The recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) was 60:30:00 NPK kg ha-1. The result indicated that growth and yield contributing character of linseed viz., number of branches plant-1, spread plant-1, total dry matter plant-1, number of capsule plant-1, weight of capsule plant-1, number of seed capsule-1, seed yield plant-1, test weight (g) were appreciably improve with the variety LSL-93 (V2) except plant height, straw yield and biological yield (kg ha-1). The variety LSL-93 (V2) was found significantly effective in producing higher seed yield, oil yield (kg ha-1), GMR, NMR and B: C ratio over the variety NL-260(V1). Among the different spacing a wider spacing of 30 cm × 10 cm (S3) produced significantly higher growth and yield attributing characters over the spacing of 30 cm × 5 cm (S1) and found at par with 45 cm × 5 cm (S2). The closer spacing of 30 c m × 5 cm (S1) was effective in producing highest seed yield, oil yield and straw yield, GMR, NMR and B: C ratio.
