Abstract:

Afield experiment was conducted during kharif 2018 at Oilseeds Research Station, Jalgaon which comes under Mahatma Phule Agricultural University, Maharashtra state to evaluate the influence of terminal nipping and growth regulators on yield maximization of sesame. The soil of experimental field was vertisoles, low in nitrogen (221 kg ha-1) medium in phosphorus (21.60 kg ha-1) and rich in potassium (675 kg ha-1) with alkaline in reaction (pH 8.14).The experiment was conducted in randomized block design with seven treatments and replicated thrice. The treatment comprises of T1 - Control, T2- Terminal nipping at 30 DAS, T3 - Salicylic acid (SA) spray 100ppm at 30 DAS, T4 - DAP 2%spray at 30DAS, T5 - T2 + T3, T6- T2 + T4, T7- T2 + T3 + T4. Among these treatment T7   i.e. the combination of  terminal nipping at 30 DAS + Salicylic acid (SA) spray 100ppm at 30 DAS + DAP 2% spray at 30DAS has recorded maximum number of branches plant-1 (5.2), number of capsules plant-1 (89.7), plant height (119.56 cm), seed yield (541 kg ha-1), Net Monitory Return (39210 Rs.ha-1) and B:C ratio (2.93).


Keywords: Sesame, Salicylic acid, DAP, Terminal nipping, Growth and Yield.
