Abstract

An experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2001–2002 to study the perfonnance of three varieties viz., Pusa Chetki, Pusa Reshmi and Japanese White and four plant spacings viz., 60 x 60, 60 x 45, 60 x 30 and 60 x 15 cm on seed yidd and quality of radish. The results indicated that, maximum seed yield of 13.47 and 14.01 q/ha was harvested from Pusa Chetki variety and the closer plant spacing treatment 60 x 15 cm, respectively. Among quality characters, test weight and graded seed yield were observed maximum in wider spacing of 60 x 60 cm whereas, the variety Pusa Chetki recorded highest test weight and germination percentage of radish seed. The interaction of varieties x spacings was non-significant for all the characters.
