Abstract:
The present experiment was conducted at the Research Farm of Dr. KSG Akal College of Agriculture, Eternal University, Baru Sahib (H.P.) during the summer season of 2021. The trial consisted of two factors, namely seed rates and planting methods, resulting in eight treatment combinations. These combinations were arranged in a completely randomized design with three replications to ensure consistent and unbiased results. The eight treatments included two different seed rates (S1 - 4 kg ha-1, S2 - 5.5 kg ha-1) and four methods of planting (M1 - broadcasting, M2 - Line sowing, M3 - Transplanting randomly, M4 - Transplanting in lines). It was observed that treatment M3 (Transplanting randomly) resulted in significantly higher withanolide content. The different seed rates did not have a significant impact on the withanolide content. In terms of the interaction effect, the treatment M3S2 (Transplanting randomly + 5.5 kg per hectare) yielded the highest withanolide content.
