Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at Horticulture Instructional Farm, CP College of Agriculture, SD Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar, Gujarat to find out the effect of different plant spacing on growth, yield and quality of broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica. L). Three plant spacings viz., S1 – 30 cm × 30 cm, S2 – 45 cm × 30 cm and S3 – 45 cm × 45 cm was analyzed statistically on growth, growth attributes, yield and quality parameters of broccoli and are summarized below. The results revealed that the treatment S1 (30 cm x 30 cm) attained significantly maximum plant height at transplanting (21.90 cm), at 45 DAT (39.35 cm) and at harvest (57.67 cm), minimum number of days taken for head initiation (61.48) and head harvest (81.37), maximum yield per plot (5.73 kg) and yield per hectare (219.36 q). Whereas significantly maximum plant spread E-W (50.36 cm) & N-S (49.91 cm) at 45 DAT & at harvest E-W (62.15 cm) & N-S (62.12 cm), highest head diameter (14.10 cm), fresh weight of head (275.53 g), total dry matter content of the head (19.81 %), crude protein content (2.91%), potassium content (464.2 mg) and calcium content (42.65 mg) were recorded with the wider plant spacing treatment S3 (45 cm x 45 cm).
