Abstract:

In order to investigate the “effect of Sowing Date on Yield and Yield Attributes of Safflower Genotypes”, an experiment was conducted on a split plot design with 4 replications during the year 2015-16 at AICRP on Safflower, VNMKV, Parbhani (M.S.). The experiment consisted of 9 treatment combinations comprising 3 sowing dates (15th October, 30thOctober and 15th November) as main plots and 3 cultivars (Annigiri-1, NARI-6 and NARI-57) as subplots. The result showed that sowing of safflower on 15th October recorded significantly higher Yield and Yield attributing characters viz.; weight of capitula (74.85 g plant-1), number of seeds capitula-1 (27.55), seed index (3.71 g), seed yield (1042 kg ha-1), straw yield (3210 kg ha-1) and biological yield (4252 kg ha-1) as compared to 30th October and 15th November sowing date respectively. Among the cultivars of safflower, Annigiri-1 noted higher yield and yield attributing characters viz., weight of capitula (74.55 g plant-1), number of seeds capitula-1 (27.14), seed index (4.27 g), seed yield (1019 kg ha-1), straw yield (3426 kg ha-1) and biological yield (4445 kg ha-1) over NARI-57 and NARI-6. From the study it can be concluded that combination of cultivar Annigiri-1 sown on15th October performed best among all other treatment combinations.
