Abstract

A trial was conducted to see the effect of different row spacing and cutting on the growth and yield of Spinach. The results showed that the differences in row spacing were non-significant for Plant height (cm), number of leaves, fresh foliage yield (kg ha-1) and dried foliage yield (kg ha -1). Broadcast method of sowing produced the most prominent results in all the parameters studied, giving the maximum plant height of 25.58 cm, maximum number of leaves (11.61), maximum fresh foliage yield of 2255 kg ha -1 and maximum dried foliage yield of 218.7 kg ha-1. The cuttings showed significant differences for plant height (cm), fresh and dried foliage yield (kg ha -1), whereas the cuttings showed a non-significant behavior for number of leaves. First cutting showed maximum plant height of 26.66 cm, whereas the second cutting gave the maximum number of leaves (11.17), fresh foliage yield of 2329 kg ha -1 and dried foliage yield of 222.7kg ha -1.
