Abstract:

Leaf yield and yield related parameters play an important role in improvement of mulberry quality and quantity.The present study was conducted at Regional Sericultural Research Station, Central Silk Board, Miran Sahib, Jammu during Spring, 2019 to evaluate different mulberry plantation systems for growth, yield and its contributing characters under sub-tropical conditions of Jammu. The data recorded on leaf yield and yield contributing characters from three different plantation systems (3x3 ft., 8x8 ft. and 10x10 ft.) revealed that number of new shoots per plant (63.29), longest shoot length (104.74 cm), number of leaves per meter of shoot length (21.43), leaf:shoot ratio (1.21) and leaf yield per plant per crop (3.96 kg) were found to be higher in 10×10 ft. spacing plantation system. Leaf yield per plant and other yield parameters were found to be superior in wider spacing plantation system as compared to narrow spacing which may be due to abundant space for root spread, high uptake of the nutrients and moisture.
