Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2016 at College Farm, N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari with Fourteen treatment combinations. Treatments were replicated thrice as per randomized block design with factorial concept. Significantly higher values of plant height (85.70 cm), number of leaves plant-1(61.03), number of branches plant-1 (4.66), dry matter accumulation (15.26 g plant-1), number of capsules plant-1 (57.00), number of seeds capsule-1(62.45), length of capsule (3.19), seed yield (802 kg ha-1) and straw yield (1731 kg ha-1) were recorded with row spacing of 45 cm x 10 cm. Likewise, significantly maximum plant height (96.84 cm), number of leaves plant-1(74.22), number of branches plant-1 (5.12), dry matter accumulation (17.86 g plant-1), number of capsules plant-1 (68.20), number of seeds capsule-1(70.80), length of capsule (3.47), seed yield (972 kg ha-1) and straw yield (1924 kg ha-1) were obtained with W7 (Pendimethalin 1.0 kg ha-1 as PE fb quizalofop-P-ethyl 40 g ha-1 at 20 DAS fb H. W. at 40 DAS). Significantly lowest dry weight (377.60 kg ha-1) of total weeds was noted under treatment S1 (30 cm x 10 cm). In weed management treatments W7 recorded markedly lower value of dry weight (270.52 kg ha-1) of total weeds. Hence the crop sown with wider row spacing and weed management with integration of all methods showed favourable growth leads to higher yield of sesamum.
