Abstract:

Pineapple [Ananas comosus (L.) Merr.] is a commercial fruit crop belonging to the family Bromeliaceae. In West Bengal, Kew is being grown as commercial cultivar mainly for processing purpose. Monoculture with one cultivar since a long time invites different problems of cultivation. So, a cultivar Mauritius exclusively grown for table purpose has been introduced to West Bengal. The density of the planting stands to be the one of the most important factors in India. Though much work has been carried out on optimum spacing of pineapple cv Kew, in West Bengal mainly in Terai zone, no reference has been reported for the spacing of Pineapple cv. Mauritius. The present experiment was conducted in instructional farm of Pomology and Post-harvest Technology, UBKV, Pundibari, West Bengal during 2016-2018. Results revealed that when different spacing’s ranging from 64000 plants/ha to 29,630 plants/ha were used, there was significant difference among 7 treatments. Highest plant height of 90.57cm was observed in T7 at 16 months after planting and effect of densities on flowering percentage were insignificant.
