Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to determine the effect of spacing and nitrogen management practices on yield and monetary parameters of sesame during kharif 2020 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Naini Agriculture Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, India. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design, with 9 treatments, each replicated thrice with three different spacing i.e., 30 cm x 10 cm, 45 cm x 10 cm, 60 cm x 10 cm and three levels of nitrogen management practices i.e., 100% RDN (Recommended dose of Nitrogen), 75% RDN + 25% N through Bokashi + Azotobacter inoculation and 50% RDN + 50% N through Bokashi + Azotobacter inoculation. The experiment was laid in randomized block design with nine treatments replicated thrice. Results revealed that spacing 45 cm x 10 cm and 75% RDN + 25% N through Bokashi + Azotobacter inoculation gave maximum grain yield (1256.67 kg/ha), stover yield (2112.67 kg/ha), Gross return (96362.92 INR/ha), Net return (66957.82 INR/ha), and B.C ratio (3.28).
