Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted to optimise seed rate through seed rate compensation on growth, seed yield and quality in JS335 and JS9560 soybean varieties during 2017-18 at NSP, University of Agricultural Sciences, Bengaluru. The experimental material for the study comprised of 2 soybean varieties (JS335 and JS9560) procured from NSP. The results revealed that, among the seed rate compensation levels, C1 recorded higher number of seeds per pod (3.68), number of pods per plant (44.25), seed yield per plant (9.60), seed yield per plot (1.90); germination (96.83%), seedling length (34.54) and seedling dry weight (8.67mg). Among the varieties, V1 (JS 335) recorded higher number of seeds per pod (2.67), Number of pods per plant (70.52), seed yield per plant (8.95), seed yield per plot (1.51); germination (96.33%), seedling length (31.91) and seedling dry weight (48.23mg). The lowest yield and quality parameter was observed in C5 (Aged seeds of 50 per cent germination with compensated seed rate, 87.5 kg/ha).
