Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during the kharif season of 2020 at the College Farm, College of Agriculture, N.A.U, Bharuch, to study the “Effect of time of sowing and row spacing on growth, yield and quality of soybean (Glycine max L.) under rainfed condition”. The soil of the experimental field was clayey in texture having medium to poor drainage capacity, good water holding capacity, medium in available nitrogen, medium in available phosphorus, high in available potassium and low in available sulphur and slightly alkaline in reaction. Total nine treatment combinations consisting of three levels of time of sowing (T1: Onset of monsoon, T2: One week after T1 and T3: One week after T2), and three levels of row spacing (S1: 30 cm, S2: 45 cm and S3: 60 cm) were evaluated in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The results revealed that sowing of soybean at onset of monsoon with 60 cm row spacing were found to be optimum agronomic practices for obtaining the higher growth, yield and quality under rainfed condition.
