Abstract:

Field experiments conducted during 2016-2017 for the management of wilt of linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.), eleven varieties namely, Jeevan, Sweta, Parvati, Surbhi, NDL-2004-05, Kiran, RLC-92, Indira Alsi, Dipika, Shekhar including susceptible cultivar Chambal were sown in the month of October, 2016. Out of 11 varieties, the maximum initial plant population (537.67 and 516.33/ plot) was noted with Shekhar followed by NDL-2004-05 respectively. Susceptible check Chambal has average initial plant population of 490.67/plot after germination. The minimum percentage of wilting was recorded in cultivar RLC-92 (5.47 per cent) followed by Jeevan (07.61 per cent) and Indira Alsi (07.85 Per cent), respectively but all were at par statistically. Maximum per cent of wilting was recorded in susceptible cultivar Chambal (70.87 Per cent) followed by Sweta (61.64 Per cent) and Shekhar (61.50 per cent). Maximum seed yield of 996.29 kg/ha was recorded in cultivar RLC-92 followed by Dipika (914.07kg/ha) and NDL-2004-5 (909.62 kg/ha), respectively, which was significantly higher over others. Linseed cultivar Chambal was sown in 7 different dates starting from 10 October, 2017 to 9 December, 2017 of 10 days intervals. Maximum wilting of plants (66.66 Per cent) were noted in 1st date (10-10-2017) of sowing which decreased with delayed sowing and minimum (14.31 Per cent) was recorded in December sown (09-12-2017) crop. Significant difference in wilting percentage was noted in crops sown on different dates. Maximum yield of 582.95kg/ha was noted in crop sown on 19-11-2017 followed by crop sown on 09-11-2017 (434.81kg/ha) and 30-10-2017 (414.81kg/ha), respectively.
