Abstract:

Many factors limiting soybean production at farmer’s field level. A field investigation was undertaken to optimize the sowing time and plant density during kharif 2015 and 2016 at Agricultural Research Institute, Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University Rajendranagar, at Hyderabad to realize higher productivity of soybean. The experiment was carried out with three dates of sowing (26 June, 6 July and 16 July) as first factor  and three plant densities (3,33,333 plants ha-1,  1,66,666 plants ha-1  and 1,11,111 plants ha-1) as second factor. The study revealed that 26 June sown crop recorded significantly higher yield of 1535 and 2409 kg ha-1 during 2015 and 2016 respectively with superior growth and yield attributes over 6 July and 16 July sown crop. Plant density of 3,33,333 plants ha-1 (30 cm x 10 cm) recorded significantly higher seed yield of 1460 and 2310 kg ha-1 during 2015 and 2016 respectively with improved growth and yield attributes per unit area compared to other plant densities, even though plant density of 1,11,111 plants ha-1 recorded higher growth and yield attributes per plant.
