Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the rabi season of 2019-20 at Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya University, Raipur, Rajmohini Devi College of Agriculture and Research Station, Ambikapur, to study the effect of sowing dates and planting geometry on yield attributes, yield and economics of linseed. The treatments comprised of 4 sowing dates, viz. D1: 4th week of October, D2: 1st week of November, D3: 2nd week of November and D4: 3rd week of November in main plots and 3 spacing, S1: 22.5 cm x 5 cm, S2: 22.5cm x 7.5 cm and S3: 22.5 cm x 10 cm in sub-plots with replicated three times in a split plot design. Sowing dates as well as spacing significantly affected yield attributes, yield, and economics. The results of the experiment showed significantly higher number of capsule/ plant (40.01), weight of capsule / plant (16.16 g), seed yield (12.61 q/ha), straw yield (32.75 q/ha), biological yield (45.58 q/ha), harvest index (27.79 %), oil yield (479 kg/ha) and accrued highest gross monetary return (Rs 56745 ha-1), net monetary return (Rs. 39145 ha-1) with B:C (2.22) were recorded in sowing on 4th week of October (D1). Sowing of linseed with planting geometry S3 (22.5 cm x 10 cm) was recorded significantly higher yield attributes but yield and economics were higher with S1 (22.5×5 cm) per unit area.
