Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Instructional-cum-Research (ICR) Farm, Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat during the summer season, 2017 to study the yield attributing characters and yield of baby corn under spacing viz., 40 cm x 20 cm, 40 cm x 25 cm, 45 cm x 20 cm and 45 cm x 25 cm in main plot and nutrient management practices viz., 120-60-60 N-P2O5-K2O (kg/ha), 75% of N of I1 + 25% N replaced by VC and 50% of N of I1 + 50% N replaced by VC in sub plot under split-plot design with three replications. Experimental findings revealed that spacing 40 cm x 20 cm and 45 cm x 20 cm had significantly higher plant height and leaf area index as compared to 40 cm x 25 cm and 45 cm x 25 cm at 45 DAS and at harvest. The yield attributing characters viz., number of cobs per plant, weight of cob and length of cob with and without husk and girth of baby corn were found maximum under spacing 45 cm x 25 cm with application of 75% of N of I1 + 25% N replaced by VC. Significantly highest cob yield with husk, cob yield without husk and green fodder yield was obtained under spacing 45 cm x 20 cm and treatment 75% of N of I1 + 25% N replaced by VC as compared to all other treatments.
