Abstract: An investigation was carried out at the Horticulture Farm of Sri Karan Narendra Agricultural University, Jobner (Jaipur) during the period from August 2015 to Feburary 2016 to determine the growth, yield and quality of sweet potato as influenced by different spacings. The study was conducted in randomized block design with four spacings viz. 30 cm x 30 cm (S1), 45 cm x 30 cm (S2), 60 cm x 30 cm (S3) and 75 cm x 30 cm (S4).Vine length, leaf area, chlorophyll content in leaves, tuber weight, tuber length, tuber diameter, tuber yield (kg/plot), tuber yield (q/ha), NPK content, starch, protein, TSS and ascorbic acid content were significantly differed at different spacing levels. The maximum vine length (170.1cm), tuber weight (356.61g), tuber length (15.25cm), tuber diameter (9.07 cm), tuber yield (13.31kg/plot), tuber yield (246.54q/ha), NPK content (0.352%, 0.311% and 0.641%, respectively), starch (13.30%), protein (2.20%) and ascorbic acid content (44.00mg/100g) were found in S4 spacing level.
