Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during 2003-04 to 2005-06 to find out suitable spacing and
fertilizer dose for cotton variety AKH-8828. Significantly higher seed cotton yield (1671 kg ha-1) was
recorded in closer spacing (60 x 30 cm) than wider spacing (60 x 45 cm) while growth parameters
and yield contributing characters were found superior under wider spacing than closer spacing
except plant height which showed reverse trend. Graded levels of fertilizer increased seed cotton
yield, growth parameters and yield contributing characters. Seed cotton yield increased significantly
up to 50:25:0 NPK kg ha-1.
