Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study the“Performance of varieties and nutrient levels on growth and yield of linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.)” at the Research Farm of Barrister Thakur Chhedilal, College of Agriculture and research Station, Bilaspur (Chhattisgarh) during 2019-20. The result revealed that growth and yield parameter like plant height (70.84 cm), primary (4.11), & secondary branches per plant (22.86), dry matter accumulation (7.44), number of capsule plant-1 (60.78), number. of seed capsule-1 (8.33), test weight (7.34 g), seed yield (1483.70 kg / ha), straw yield (3290.58 kg / ha), harvest index (31.07 %), & benefit cost ratio (2.41) were significantly higher with variety V1 (RLC-92) as compared to the other variety but was at par with V5 (RLC-148). Similarly, in nutrient levels, the treatment F3 (150 % RDF) obtained significantly higher growth and yield parameter like plant height (62.17 cm), primary (4.09), & secondary branches per plant (21.96), dry matter accumulation (7.81), number of capsule plant-1 (60.24), number of seed capsule-1 (8.39), test weight (7.44 g), seed yield (1409.25 kg /ha), straw yield (3223.11 kg / ha), harvest index (30.40), as compared to F1 (50 % RDF) but was at par with 100 % RDF (F2) except B:C ratio. Highest B:C ratio obtained by F2 (2.13) However, since difference in yield and yield attributes between F3 and F2 was non-significant. Hence nutrient levels F2 (100 % RDF) is economically viable for linseed crop.
