Effect of nitrogen and spacing on yield and quality attributes of brinjal (Solanum melongena L.)


, : Effect of nitrogen and spacing on yield and quality attributes of brinjal (Solanum melongena L.). Journal of Research, Birsa Agricultural University 7(2): 137-139

Field studies were conducted at Varanasi on a sandy loam of medium fertility. Results revealed that application of 100 kg N/ha produced the highest number of fruits and yield, while fruit weight, total soluble solids and ascorbic acid content were highest at 150 kg N/ha. The lowest values for these parameters were recorded with no N. Transplanting at the widest spacing (60 cm x 90 cm) resulted in the highest number of fruits, fruit weight as well as ascorbic acid content.

The application of N increased plant height and leaf and fruit numbers; 89 kg/ha was optimal. Applying 89 kg N + 45 kg P2O5 + 45 kg K2O was the most effective treatment for increasing leaf number and raising yields (from 1.33 to 3.30 kg/plant).
