Abstract
Cardamom was supplied with 3 fertilizer rates (50 : 25 : 100, 100 : 50 : 200 and 150 : 75 : 300 kg N : P : K/ha), and sown at 5 planting densities (2.0x2.0 m, 2500 plants/ha; 2.0x1.5 m, 3333 plants/ha; 2.0x1.0 m, 5000 plants/ha; 2.0x0.75 m, 6666 plants/ha; and 2.0x0.5 m, 10 000 plants/ha) in an experiment in Karnataka, India, from 1983 to 1987. The fresh yield of capsules increased significantly up to 100 : 50 : 200 kg N : P : K/ha, and decreased significantly with increasing plant density. The dry capsule yield increased significantly with increasing fertilizer rates, and the highest yield (540.6 kg/ha) was obtained at 150 : 70 : 300 kg N : P : K/ha. Increasing the planting density up to 5000 plants/ha, spaced at 2x1 m, resulted in a significant increase in yield.
