Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Performance of different leafy vegetables with respect to open field and net house on growth, yield and quality” was carried out from March to May 2016 at Horticulture Instructional Farm, Department of Horticulture, C. P. College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar. Experiment was laid out in split plot design in which four different vegetables viz., coriander (v1), fenugreek (v2), palak (v3) and amaranth (v4) were taken in sub plot and sown in two growing conditions i.e. open field (c1) and 50 per cent agro shade net (green) (c2) as main plot. Therefore, total eight treatment combinations were replicated thrice. Among two growing conditions, 50 per cent agro shade net (green) performed significantly superior over open field with respect to early germination (5.34 days), maximum plant height (21.69 cm), leaf area (22.05 cm2), minimum days taken for first cutting (30.46), days taken for subsequent cutting (9.89), maximum yield of first cutting (0.75 kg), yield of subsequent cutting (2.77 kg), yield per plot (3.52 kg), maximum yield per hectare (157.14 q), highest iron content (5.40 mg/100g) and carotenoid content (3.81 mg/100g). Among leafy vegetable crops, palak was found significantly superior with respect to plant height (20.54 cm), leaf area (35.02 cm2), minimum days taken for first cutting (30.95), days taken for subsequent cutting (8.41), maximum yield of first cutting (1.06 kg), yield of subsequent cutting (3.38 kg), yield per plot (4.44 kg) and yield per hectare (198.21 q) also maximum chlorophyll a, b & total content (99.62, 61.99, 161.61 mg/100g, respectively) and carotenoid content (5.85 mg/100g). Palak grown under 50 per cent green agro shade net was produced maximum yield (196.9 q) and net return (1:3.71).
