Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted to study the effect of spacing and topping. The field experiment was carried out at College Agronomy farm, B.A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand during summer season of year 2017 and 2018. The soil of the experimental area was loamy sand in texture having in low available nitrogen, high in available phosphorus and medium in potash with soil 8.12 pH. The experiment consist of three spacing treatments (S1:30 cm between rows, S2:45 cm between rows, S3:60 cm between rows) and four topping treatments (T1: No topping, T2: Topping at 25 DAS, T3: Topping at 35 DAS and T4: Topping at 45 DAS) was tested in split plot design with four replication. The results revealed that plant population and periodical plant height were significantly higher when crop was sown with 30 cm spacing between two rows (S1).Effect of spacing was found non-significant in case of number of branches and stalk yield. Significantly higher seed yield (1134 kg/ha) and the highest number of capsules/plant was found when sesame was sowning at 45 cm between two row. In case of topping treatment, topping done at 35 DAS (T3) recoded significantly higher plant height, number of branches/plant, no. of capsule/plant, test weight and stalk yield.
