The field experiments were conducted in the Dept. of Seed Science and Technology, College of Agriculture, Vijayapur during  kharif 2013 and 2014. The treatments consisted of three planting geometry (22,222, 27,798 and 37,037 plants per ha) and transplanting of different aged seedlings (A1- 21 day old seedlings, A2- 28 day old seedlings, A3- 35 day old seedlings and  A4- Direct seed dibbling). Seedlings of BSMR-736( V1) and TS-3R (V2 ) were raised by using a polythene bag of 6 X 4 cm size in nursery. The results of the investigations indicated that  the  transplanting of 35 days old seedling with planting geometry of 27,798  plants per ha in BSMR -736 (2501 kg /ha) which was on par with transplanting of  28 days old seedlings and lowest value was seen in   seed dibbling at planting geometry  of  37,037 in TS-3R(1862 kg /ha). The 34 per cent increased seed yield mainly attributed to seedlings transplanted in planting geometry of 27,798  plants per ha.
