A research experiment was conducted during Kharif 2015 and 2016 at research farm college of agriculture, Gwalior (M.P.). Results revealed that 20 days of seedings age and different plant geometry, 45 x 20 cm spacing gave significantly higher yield attributes grain yield (2176.5 kg/ha & 2243.6 kg/ha), net return (12805/ha & 13794 /ha) and B. C. ratio (1.73 & 1.78) respectively.
