Author(s): Anit Kumar, Rajender Sharma and Tanzin Ladon
Abstract: The present investigation, “Studies on planting density and fertilizer levels on seed production of temperate carrot (Daucus carota L.)’’ was carried out at Vegetable Research Station, Kalpa, of Regional Horticultural Research & Training Station and Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Kinnaur (HP), Dr YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan, H.P. from April to October 2015. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (Factorial) in the field. The treatment combinations comprised of four planting densities (D) viz., D1 (45×15 cm), D2 (45×30 cm), D3 (30×30 cm) and D4 (30×15 cm), four fertilizer levels (F) viz., F1 (75% RD NPK), F2 (100% RD NPK), F3 (125% RD NPK) and F4 (150 % RD NPK). Non-significant differences of planting density, fertilizer levels as well as interaction were observed on electrical conductivity and pH. On the other hand, available NPK status was influenced only by fertilizer levels. Maximum electrical conductivity (0.250 dSm-1), pH (6.80), nitrogen (369.33 kg ha-1), phosphorus (30.40 kg ha-1) and potassium (147.71 kg ha-1) and minimum electrical conductivity (0.197dSm-1), pH (6.43), nitrogen (329.66 kg ha-1), phosphorus (23.61 kg ha-1) and potassium (136.47 kg ha-1 ) were recorded in F4D2 (150 % RD NPK & 45×30 cm) and F1D3 (75 % RD NPK & 30×30 cm), respectively.
