Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Rabi-2022 at Experimental Farm, Agronomy Department, College of Agriculture, Parbhani to investigate the impact of spacing and fertilizer levels on growth and yield of amaranth. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with two factors and replicated thrice. Main plots were assigned to the different spacing viz S1: 45cm x 15cm, S2: 45cm x 20cm and S3: 30cm x 20cm and subplot comprises of four fertilizer levels viz. F1: 30:20:10 NPK kg ha-1, F2:45:30:15 NPK kg ha-1, F3:60:40:20 NPK kg ha-1 and F4:75:50:25 NPK kg ha-1. The experimental gross plot size was 5.4 x 4.8 m2 and net plot size varied as per treatment. On 21st November, 2022, sowing was carried out by dibbling the seed @ 2 kg ha-1. The result of experiment revealed that sowing of amaranth at spacing of 45cm×15cm and application of 75:50:25 NPK Kg ha-1 were found more productive. While spacing of 45 cm×20 cm produced higher value of growth attributes except plant height.
