Abstract:

The field experiment entitled “Phenology, growth and quality of sweet corn (Zea mays saccharata L.) As influenced by sowing dates and plant spacing” was carried at SKUAST-K, Shalimar during kharif season 2014. The cultivar Misthi of Sweet corn was chosen for the study. The experiment comprised of two factors with four sowing dates viz. 24th May (D1), 02nd June (D2), 11th June (D3) and 19th June (D4) as main-plot treatments and three plant spacing viz. 60 cm x 20 cm(S1), 70 cm x 20 cm (S2)and 80 cm x 20 cm (S3) as sub-plot treatments replicated thrice. Results of the experiment revealed that 24th May (D1) sowing recorded significantly highest plant height and number of functional leaves as compared to other sowing dates. More number of days was taken by sweet corn sown on 24th May (D1) and accumulated more heat compared to delay sowing. Among plant spacing, plant height which was significantly superior with 80 cm x 20 cm than 70 cm x 20 cm and 60 cm x 20 cm and more number of days was taken by sweet corn at plant spacing of 80 cm x 20 cm and accumulated more heat units compared to closer spacing. And non-significant effect of sowing dates and plant spacing was observed on quality of sweat corn.


Keywords: Maize, Plant spacing, Quality, Sowing dates.
