Abstract:

The investigation entitled “Studies on the effect of planting dates on growth, yield and quality of red cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata f. rubra)” was carried out in Rabi season 2018-2019 at Mango Research Station, Nuzvid, Krishna Dist. (A.P.). Study included three levels of planting dates (30th September, 15th and 30th October) each replicated thrice in FRBD. Planting dates significantly influenced the growth, yield and quality parameters at all the growth stages. Among all the treatments, significantly highest plant height (34.32 cm), plant spread (50.46 cm) and number of heading leaves per plant (21.49) recorded at final harvest. Among yield and yield attributing characters maximum head circumference (46.72 cm), head length (16.73 cm), head volume (859.58 cc), head compactness (0.51), head weight (551 g), head yield per plot (44.10 kg), Estimated yield (338.83q ha-1) and dry matter production (11.24%) with minimum days to head initiation (47.01days) and head harvest (81.30days) were recorded by 15th October planting date (D2) and the same was also maintained best quality with respect to anthocyanin content (118.83 mg/100g), ascorbic acid content (37.68 mg/100g) and TSS (8.54o Brix).
