Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif 2016, to study the effect of date of sowing and fertilizer application on seed yield and quality of Sunnhemp genotypes (Crotalaria juncea L.) at Agricultural Research Station, Kalloli, Gokak taluk Belagavi district, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. The field experiment comprised of twenty-four treatments with three replications in double split plot design. Among different dates of sowing,D3-First fortnight of August recorded highest plant height and more dry matter production (136.5 cm and 101.4 g plant-1 respectively) followed by D2- second fortnight of July (133.5 cm and 97.99 g plant-1 respectively) and D1- First fortnight of July (130.6 cm and 94.75 g plant-1 respectively). With respect to fertilizer levels,F3- 37.5:75:37.5 NPK
kg ha-1 recorded higher plant height and dry matter production (136.4 cm and 100.8 g plant-1 respectively) followed by F2- 31.25:62.5:31.25 NPK kg ha-1 (134.9 cm and 99.2 g plant-1 respectively) and F1- 25:50:25 NPK kg ha-1 (129.3 cm 94.14 g plant-1 respectively). And Local genotype recorded higher plant height and dry matter production (134.0 cm and 98.55 g plant-1) compared to SUN-053 (133.1 cm and 97.53 g plant-1).
