Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Instructional farm, Department of Agronomy, COA, Parbhani on a clayey soil during kharif season of 2018 to find out the effect of with two factors viz., sowing dates [four levels: D1 (15th June), D2 (30th June), D3 (15th July) and D4 (30th July)] and three fertilizer levels [F1 (75% RDF), F2 (100% RDF) and F3(125% RDF)] with twelve treatments combinations. Each experimental unit was repeated three times. The fertilizer dose of 50:25:00 NPK kg ha-1 was applied after sowing. Amongst sowing dates, Crop sown on 15th June recorded significantly higher growth attributes, yield attributes, seed yield (435 kg ha-1), straw yield (1541 kg ha-1), biological yield (1975 kg ha-1). Amongst fertilizer levels, 125 % RDF (F3) recorded significantly higher growth attributes, yield attributes, seed yield (375 kg ha-1), straw yield (1381 kg ha-1), biological yield (1756 kg ha-1), harvest index (21.36 %). From result it can be concluded that, sowing of sesamum on 15th June and 30th June was found beneficial as compared to other sowing dates. Among the various fertilizer levels the application of fertilizer level 100% RDF was more profitable.
