Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of planting dates and plant density on germination parameters of Abelmoschus moschatus. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design with 16 treatments in Kharif replicated thrice. The treatments included four plant densities S1 (50 × 20 cm), S2 (50 × 50 cm), S3 (60 × 40 cm) and S4 (60 × 50 cm) at four dates of sowing in Kharif i.e., D1 (June 1st), D2 (July 1st), D3 (August 1st), D4 (September 1st). The results indicated that D1 + S4 (T4) recorded less number of days taken for sprouting (4.92 and 4.92 respectively) and maximum percentage of germination (77.85 and 74.29 respectively) and seed yield per plant (g) (28.72 and 27.89 respectively) as compared to other treatments.
