Growth and yield of carrot (Daucus carota L.) cultivars as influenced by sowing dates

Growth and yield of carrot (Daucus carota L.) cultivars as influenced by sowing dates

Crop Research Hisar 5(Supplement): 158-162

Three carrot cultivars (Pusa Meghali, Pusa Kesar and Half Long Nantes) were evaluated for 9 growth- and yield-related traits when grown under 4 sowing dates (14 October to 28 November) at Mondouri, West Bengal during 1988. Significant differences were observed due to both cultivars and sowing dates. Pusa Kesar was superior to the other cultivars, having larger roots of increased weight and producing a mean yield of 1.7 t/ha.
