Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Response of sunnhemp (Crotalaria juncea L.) to sowing time and topping for seed production” was conducted during kharif 2016 at C. P. College of Agriculture, S. D. Agricultual University, Sardarkrushinagar. The experiment consisted of four different dates of sowing and four stages of topping at different intervals. These treatments were evaluated under split plot design with four replications. Among various dates of sowing, treatment S2 (4th week of June) exhibited significantly higher plant height, branches per plant, higher number of pods per plant, test weight, seed and stalk yield, net return (25,213 /ha) and benefit : cost ratio (1.97). Among various topping treatments, treatment T2 (topping at 30 DAS) gave significantly higher number of branches per plant, number of pods per plant, test weight, seed and stalk yield, net realization (23,484 /ha) and benefit : cost ratio (1.89).
