Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of planting dates and plant density on yield 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 T4 (D1 + S4) recorded a significantly maximum pod length (9.15), maximum pod diameter (2.81), number of seeds per pod (102.31), seed weight per pod (1.25) and test weight (1.51) over other treatments, T1 (D1 + S1) June 1st sown crop with spacing S1 (50 cm) recorded maximum seed yield per hectare (25.05) (q) whereas T13 (D4 + S1) recorded the minimum pod length (7.39), pod diameter (2.15), number of seeds per pod (87.25), seed weight per pod (0.97), test weight (1.23), as compared to the other treatments during Kharif.
