Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at the Agricultural Research Farm of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Bishnupur, Utlou, Manipur to study the effect of varieties and spacing on growth, yield and yield attributes of Soya bean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill]. The results revealed that the growth attributes increased with higher planting space i.e. (45 cm x 15 cm) for all the growth stages. The variety JS-335 was found most effective compare to other varieties. The treatment V1S3 with variety JS - 335 and spacing 45 cm x 15 cm recorded maximum plant height, number of branches, for all the growth stages i.e. at 30, 45, 60 DAS and at maturity. The different planting spaces and varieties significantly enhanced the yield and yield attributes of soya bean. The treatment V1S3 with variety JS- 335 and spacing of 45 cm x 15 cm gave the maximum grain yield (1822.66 kg/ha), stover yield (2528.33 kg/ha) and followed by treatment V1S2 (JS - 335 + 45 cm x10 cm). The highest gross return (₹ 91133), net return (₹ 55489) and benefit-cost ratio (2.55) were obtained from the treatment V1S3.
