Abstract:
The present experiment was undertaken to determine the effect of different varieties and spacings on the growth, yield, and quality traits of Amaranthus. In this experiment five varieties i. e. Pusa Badi Chaulai, Pusa Choti Chaulai, Pusa Kirti, Pusa Kiran and Pusa Lal Chaulai and two spacing viz. 20 x 15 cm, 25 x 15 cm were used for study. The layout of the experimental was laid down in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications. It is revealed that the widest spacing (25 x 15 cm) produced higher plant height (124.71 cm), number of branches per plant (6.89), and length of leaves (14.61 cm) of the plant significantly. The width of leaves (8.01 cm) and intermodal length (9.20 cm) and stem diameter at collar region (12.27 cm) were also in the same pattern i.e. wider spacing (25 x 15cm). The number of spikes per plant (10.76) has also increased in the wider spacing (20x15 cm). On the contrary, the yield has been noticed highest (5.57kg/plot) at closer spacing (20 x 15 cm) and lowest yield in the wider spacing (4.26/kg plot). The amaranthus planted at wider spacing (25 x 15 cm) provided maximum iron content (1043.133 mg/ 100 g), moisture content (84.405%), TSS (2.276%) and ascorbic acid (96.835 mg/ 100g).
