Abstract:

An experiment was conducted at Agricultural Research Station, Borwat Farm, Banswara to evaluate the hirsutum cotton hybrids under various pant geometries and fertility levels Sowing of H-8 cotton hybrid gave significantly higher seed cotton yield (2274 kg ha-1) over RAHH-259 (1827 kg ha-1). The maximum seed cotton yield (2076 kg ha-1) was observed under plant geometry of 90 x 45 cm than wider plant geometry of 90 x 60 cm (1808 kg ha-1) and 90 x 90 cm (1735 kg ha-1). Though, yield attributing parameters such as bolls plan-1 and boll weight were statically improved in wider as compared to closer spacing but it could not compensate yield due to significantly higher plant population in the later case. Among fertility levels, similar seed cotton yield was recorded with the application of 100 % RDF (2079 kg ha-1) and 125 % RDF (2108 kg ha-1) but both were significantly better than that application of 75 % RDF and plant geometry 90 x 45 cm seemed to be ideal for hirsutum cotton hybrid for realizing higher productivity under the specific agro climatic zone IV b of Rajasthan.
