Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Effect of spacing and pinching on leaf yield of kasuri methi (Trigonella corniculata L.)” was carried out in the year 2015 - 2016, at Chilli and Vegetables Research Unit, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola with an objective to study the effect of spacing and pinching on leaf yield of kasuri methi indivisually, to find out the suitable combination of spacing and pinching on leaf yield of kasuri methi. An experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) with eight treatment combinations. There were two factors in an experiment, first being spacing with four levels viz., S1 (10 x 15 cm), S2 (15 x 15 cm), S3 (15 x 30 cm) and S4 (30 x 30 cm) and another factor of pinching with two levels i.e. P1 (first pinching at 30 DAS) and P2 (second pinching at 40 DAS) and replicated thrice to study the spacing and pinching effect on leaves quality and leaves yield of kasuri methi.
Results of the present investigation revealed that, the vegetative growth observations in terms of plant height, branches per plant and number of leaves were increased with wider spacing treatment S4 (30 x 30 cm) and also subsequent second pinching undertaken at 40 DAS. As regards to the interaction effect of spacing and pinching, the treatment combination S4P2 viz., kasuri methi sown at the spacing at 30 x 30 cm and pinched at 40 DAS produced significantly the maximum fresh as well as dry leaves yield per plant, per plot and per hectare, respectively.
