Abstract:

A study was carried out for three years at Dr. Y. S. Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan to evaluate the effect of different sowing methods and plant densities on oil yield of Tagetes minuta. Different planting methods i.e. broadcasting and seedling planting with varying plant densities S1 (30 x 15cm), S2 (30 x 30cm), S3 (30 x 45cm), S4 (45 x 45cm) and S5 (45 x 60cm) were evaluated under RBD Factorial design. The leaves biomass (pre-flowering stage), flower biomass and leaf + flower biomass (full bloom stage) yielded maximum oil at S3 (30 x 45cm) spacing. The leaf + flower biomass at full bloom stage yielded maximum BCR (Benefit Cost Ratio) in S3 (30 x 45cm).
