Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Main Agricultural Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, Karnataka during kharif season of 2016-17 to study the effect of plant spacing and different levels of nutrients on the productivity of buckwheat. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replications. The treatments comprised of three plant spacing as main plot viz., 30 X 10 cm, 30 X 15 cm and 30 X 20 cm and three nutrient levels as sub plot viz., 35:20:20 NPK kg ha-1, 35:15:15 NPK kg ha-1 and 25:10:10 NPK kg ha-1. Among the plant spacing, significantly taller plant height (73.2 cm), LAI (2.3), clusters per plant (5.2), seeds per cluster (8.3), grain yield (6.2 q ha-1) and straw yield (10.3 q ha-1) was observed with spacing of 30 X 10 cm. Among the nutrient levels, application of 35:20:20 NPK kg ha-1 recorded significantly LAI (2.5), nodes plant -1 (20.4), clusters per plant (5.0), seeds per cluster (8.5), test weight (26.6 g), grain yield (6.0 q ha-1) and straw yield (10.2 q ha-1).
