Influence of Date of Sowing on Growth and Yield of Different Varieties of Radish (Raphanus Sativus Linn.) Under Allahabad Agro Climatic Conditions

Evakordor K. Jyrwa | Dr. B. Mehera

Abstract: An experiment was conducted at the Research farm, School of Forestry and Environment, SHIATS, Allahabad during Rabi season 2014-2015 to study the effect of sowing dates on three different varieties of radish. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (3x3 factorial) and replicated thrice. Seeds of the cultivars viz. , hill queen, Mino early and S. S11 were sown on three different dates i. e. Oct 7, Oct 17 and Oct 27. Maximum plant height, leaf length, number of leaves, root length and root yield was obtained by 3rd sowing i. e. Oct 27. While root diameter and root weight were obtained by 1st sowing i. e. Oct 7. It was observed that Mino early recorded the highest root yield about 13.10 t/ha. The combined effect of sowing dates and varieties showed that sowing on Oct 27, all varieties performed well in respect of yield and yield components. Mino early was found to be the best in respect of quality judging.
