Abstract:

To view the effect of depth of planting on growth and yield parameters of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) crop, the experiments were conducted at Students Research Farm, Khalsa College Amritsar. The experiments were conducted at three different depths of planting as treatments viz., D1 (3”), D2 (5”) and D3 (7”) and each treatment was replicated three times. The data had been recorded at their respective stages of growth and total yield were measured at the end of the season of the potato crop. It was found that maximum number of stems per plant was 6.07 recorded in D2 treatment along with maximum plant height of 43.20 cm and maximum leaf area index of 3.14 as compared to other treatments. The maximum tuber yield was 203 q/ha and highest number of tubers per plant (7.60) was found in D2 treatment. The study also revealed that the number of tubers per plant decreased as the depth of planting increased. The shallow and deeper depth of planting would reduce the tuber yield due to delay in plant tuber emergence and unfavorable development soil condition and shallow planting also result in reduced the length of stolons which reduced the yield significantly.
