Abstract: A field experiment to study the influence of planting date and chemical desuckering on morpho-physiological parameters, yield and quality of bidi tobacco varieties (Nicotiana tabacum L.) was carried out at Bidi Tobacco Research Station, Anand Agricultural University, Anand during the year 2016-17. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) with three replications comprising twelve treatment combinations of two varieties (GT 7 and GABT 11), two suckericides treatments (hand desuckering and pendimethalin @ 0.45 % + 2 % urea) and three transplanting dates (3rd week of August, 1st week of September and 3rd week of September). Physiological parameters like LAI and LAR were significantly higher in the variety GABT 11 at harvesting. Variety GABT 11 also recorded higher NAR and RGR at 135 DAT – harvesting stage. Cured leaf yield, harvest index, chlorophyll content and reducing sugar were maximum in the variety GABT 11. While, variety GT 7 recorded significantly lowest nicotine content and higher spangle score.
