Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season 2017-18 at the Research Farm, College of Horticulture, Mandsaur (Madhya Pradesh) to find out the effect of sowing time and plant geometry on growth, yield and quality of black cumin (Nigella sativa L.) under Malwa plateau condition. The experiment was laid out in factorial RBD design with three replications including four sowing time and three plant geometry. The different treatments significantly influenced the growth, yield and quality attributes of black cumin. Sowing of black cumin on 15th October and crop geometry of 30x10 cm significantly influenced the plant height (cm), number of branches plant-1, fresh weight of plant (gm), dry weight of plant (gm), biological yield (q ha-1), test weight (gm), seed yield plant-1 (gm), seed germination (%), chlorophyll content (SPAD) and oil content (%) in seed. Therefore, sowing of black cumin on 15th October at 30x10 cm of plant geometry gave the maximum growth, yield and quality of black cumin.
