Abstract:

Knol khol (Brassica oleracea var. Gongylodes L.) is one of the important cruciferous vegetable crops of mid hills of Jammu & Kashmir. It is a short duration crop, biennial showing seed maturiy in the month of April-May.Its maturity coincides with the sowing of maize crop which is the main staple crop of the region. To enable the farmers to go for knolkhol seed production, a two year field experiment was conducted at Regional Agricultural Research Station, Rajouri, SKUAST-Jammu during 2011-12 and 2012-13. Two methods viz., in-situ and replanting methods of knolkhol seed production were laid out and all the growth, seed yield and crop duration parameters were recorded for comparative studies.Results clearly pointed out that that in situ method, seed was produced in the month of March, where as in replanting method, the seed was produced in the month of April. Moreover, high seed yield per plant and test weight was recorded in situ method. Thus, it can be concluded that in situ method of knolkhol seed production may be recommended to the farmers of mid hills of Jammu & Kashmir.
