Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2014-15 at Oilseeds Research Station, Latur, to study the response of sesame to different spicing and fertilizer levels. The experiment was laid out in a split plot design consisting six spacing and three fertilizer levels with two replications. The results indicated that growth and yield attributing characters of sesame viz. plant height, number of functional leaves, leaf area, number of capsule, number of branches, total dry matter, capsule yield per plant and test weight were appreciably improved with the spacing of 60 cm x 15 (S6) cm the spacing of 45 cm x 10 cm (S1) was found to be significantly effective in producing higher seed yield (kg ha-1), oil yield (kg ha-1), gross monetary returns, net monetary returns and B: C ratio which was at a par with the spacing of 30 cm x 15 cm (S2) and significantly superior over rest of the spacing. Among different fertilizer levels, the application of 125 % RDF (F3) produced significantly higher growth and yield attributing characters, higher seed yield (kg ha-1), oil yield (kg ha-1), gross monetary returns, net monetary returns and B:C ratio as compared to 75 % RDF (F1) and it was at par with 100% RDF (F2).
