The present study was planned with the objectives to evaluate the effect of different plant spacings and doses of nitrogen and boron on head size, head yield and quality. The investigation was conducted at the Agricultural Research Field, School of Agriculture, Lovely Professional University, Phagwara, Punjab during September 2017 to January 2018. The experimental material for the present investigation comprised one variety of broccoli viz. PalamSamridhi with nine different treatment combinations including two different spacings (60 x 60 cm and 60 x 30 cm), two levels of nitrogen (180 kg/ha and 120 kg/ha), two levels of boron (20 kg/ha and 10 kg/ha) and one control (60 x 45 + 150 kg N/ha + 15 kg B/ha). The evaluation was done in a randomized block design with nine different treatments and three replications. The observations were recorded for eighteen quantitative traits. The treatment T5 (60 x 30 cm + 180 kg N/ha + 20 kg B/ha) was found to be the optimum treatment combination which resulted in higher yield of broccoli (8.54 t/ha).
