Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2015-16 at Agronomy Instructional Farm, C. P. College of Agriculture, S. D. Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar to study the effect of sowing time, variety and spacing on yield, quality and economics of rabi fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.). Eighteen treatment combinations comprising of three sowing times i.e., 3rd week of October (D1), 1st week of November (D2) and 3rd week of November (D3), three varieties viz., Gujarat Fennel 2 (V1), Gujarat Fennel 11 (V2) and Gujarat Fennel 12 (V3) and two spacings i.e., 45 (S1) cm and 60 cm (S2) were evaluated in split plot design with four replications by keeping time of sowing as main plot and combination of variety and spacing in sub plot. The results revealed that crop sown in 3rd week of October (D1) recorded significantly superior growth, yield, quality attributes as well as economics. While, variety GF 12 (V3) noticed higher values of growth, yield, quality attributes and economics. Similarly, superior growth parameters, yield and quality attributing characters and economics were registered with 45 cm (S1) row spacing as compared to wider row spacing i.e. 60 cm (S2). The test weight was not remarkably influenced by different spacing but marked effect of different times of sowing and varieties was recorded. This study revealed that higher growth, yield, quality attributing characters and economics 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
