A field trial was conducted during kharif, 2016 at Agricultural College Farm, Bapatla to evaluate the performance of jute varieties at different sowing dates. The experiment was conducted in a randomized block design with factorial concept using three varieties of jute sown at four different dates and replicated thrice. Among the growth parameters, plant height was significantly higher at II FN of July sowing while varieties were found non-significant.S-19 variety of Jute resulted in accumulation of more drymatter at different stages while sowing during I FN of July accumulated more drymatter at different stages. The yield attributes like number of capsules/plant, seeds/capsule recorded were higher when jute was sown during I FN of July and among the varieties,S-19 performed better with more yield attributes than other two varieties. Seed and stalk yield of jute obtained were maximum with S-19 variety compared to JRO-524 and Ira varieties. Among the dates of sowing, I FN of July sown crop recorded maximum jute seed yield than other dates of sowing. However, no interaction was obtained between the varieties of jute evaluated and different dates of sowing tried.
