Abstract:

To view the effect of different time 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 four different dates of planting as treatment viz., T1 (25 September), T2 (10 October) and T3 (25 October) and T4 (10 November) each treatment 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 no. of stems per hill was 6.9recorded in T2 treatment along with maximum plant height T2 43.6 cm and maximum leaf area index 3.2 as compared to other treatments. The maximum tuber yield was 218.9 q/ha and highest number of tubers per plant 7.2 found in T2 treatment. The maximum tuber yield in 10 October sown crop due to optimum moisture and temperature condition along with good growth of plants. Thus, 10th October date of planting is found to be optimum for cultivation of potato crop in Amritsar district of Punjab.
