Effect of sowing dates and plant densities on seed yield of sesame cultivars



Effect of sowing dates and plant densities on seed yield of sesame cultivars



Crop Research (Hisar) 8(2): 404-406



A field experiment conducted during kharif 1990 at Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Tikamgarh (M.P.) on optimum date of sowing and plant density under rainfed condition indicated that sowing at the onset of monsoon (1st July) proved most advantageous for yield (3.99 q/ha) than delayed sowing. The plant density of 3.3 lakh/ha (30 times 10 cm) recorded significantly higher seed yield of 300 q/ha than 2.2 lakh/ha (30 times 15 cm) 2.05 q/ha. Variety JLSC-8 produced significantly higher seed yield (2.92 q/ha) than TKG-21 (2.89 q/ha).
