Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on loamy sand soil at Agronomy Instructional Farm, Chimanbhai Patel College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar during rabi 2015-16 to study the effect of sowing time (3rd week of October, 1st week of November and 3rd week of November), variety (Gujarat Fennel-2, Gujarat Fennel-11 and Gujarat Fennel-12) and spacing (45 cm and 60 cm) on growth, yield attributes and yield of rabi fennel. The experiment evaluated in split plot design with four replications by keeping time of sowing as main plot and combination of variety and spacing as sub plots. The result showed that the crop sown in 3rd week of October (D1) recorded significantly superior growth parameters, yield attributes and highest seed yield (1423 kg ha-1) and stover yield (4080 kg ha-1). While, variety GF-12 (V3) noticed higher values of growth parameters, yield attributes and maximum seed yield (1411 kg ha-1) and stover yield (4030 kg ha-1). Similarly, superior growth parameters, yield attributing characters and seed yield (1346 kg ha-1) and stover yield (3914 kg ha-1) were registered with 45 cm (S1) row spacing as compared to wider row spacing i.e. 60 cm (S2). The harvest index was not remarkably influenced by different times of sowing and spacing but marked effect of various verities on harvest index was recorded. This study revealed that higher growth, yield attributes and yield can be achieved by sowing the fennel variety GF-12 during 3rd week of October at 45 cm row spacing under North Gujarat Agro-climatic condition.
