Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the two years research study. The experiment shows the effect of different planting distance under open based and Anola shade condition revealed that maximum vegetative growth viz., plant height (104.84cm), Number of leaves per plant (215.36), Number of branches per plant (44.78), Root length (51.05 cm), Shoot length (45.82 cm), Root fresh weight (30.19 g), Root dry weight (7.59 g) and Total dry matter production (g) per plant (25.14 g) is associated with treatment T6-S6 Ashwagndha (M2 S2) 70 x 70cm (under Aonla shade condition), T8-S8 Sarpagandha (M2 S4) 50 x 50cm (under Aonla shade condition) along with T5-S5Ashwagndha (M2S1) 60 x 60cm (under Aonla shade condition). Whereas the highest yield and yield attributes parameters viz., Root yield (g) per plant (38.21g), Root yield (kg) per plot (2.53kg) and Root yield tones per ha. (1.69t/ha-1) was observed maximum in treatment T8-S8 Sarpagandha (M2 S4) 50 x 50cm (under Aonla shade condition). While the maximum economics and Benefit: Cost ratio i.e. (1:4.76) was also found to be the highest with treatments T8-S8 Sarpagandha (M2 S4) 50x50cm (under Aonla shade condition).
