Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at College farm, College of Agriculture, PJTSAU, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad during rabi 2015-16 to study the “Evaluation of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) at different dates of sowing and varied crop geometry in semi-arid regions of Telangana.” The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replications to test three dates of sowing (D1:15th October, D2:1st November and D3:16th November) and to standardise the crop geometry (S1 :15×10 cm, S2 :30×10 cm,S3 :45×10 cm and S4: 60×10 cm). Higher crop growth rate, Relative growth rate, total growing degree days and photothermal units was obtained on 15th October date of sowing. Higher CGR was recorded with 15 × 10 cm spacings, whereas higher RGR and NAR were obtained under 60 × 10 cm spacing. The maximum seed, stalk yield was obtained with 15th October date of sowing along with narrow (15 × 10 cm) spacing and was followed by 30 × 10 cm. The number of branches plant-1, panicle length, number of spikelets panicle-1 were higher with wider spacing 45 × 10 cm and 60 × 10 cm compared to narrow (15 × 10 cm) spacings.The higher number of grains panicle-1 was recorded with 45 × 10 cm spacing.
