Abstract:

The highest plant height (133.84 cm), primary branches (13.29), canopy spread (38.37 cm), leaves (41.90) and fruit yield per plot (970.24 kg) till 120 DAT was recorded by the var. Abhinav. Planting density at 60 cm x 60 cm (S2) recorded significantly the highest number of primary branches (13.48) and canopy spread (38.43 cm) followed by 75 cm x 40 cm (S3). The lowest number of primary branches (11.99) and canopy spread (37.55 cm) was recorded by 120 cm x 40 cm. Application of 180N: 90P: 90K kg per ha (F3) The highest plant height (133.30 cm), primary branches (13.60), canopy spread (40.74 cm), leaves (40.21) and fruit yield per plot (1066.04 kg) followed by 150N: 75P: 75K kg per ha (F2). The lowest plant height (114.47 cm), primary branches (12.25), canopy spread (34.62 cm), leaves (35.76) and fruit yield per plot (710.84 kg) was recorded by the application of 120N: 60P: 60K kg per ha (F1). Among three way interactions, the highest number of fruit yield per plot was recorded by the combination of variety Abhinav + 75 cm x 40 cm (S3) + 180N: 90P: 90K kg per ha (1396.68 kg).
