Cite article:- Sree Saila Sesha P., Reddy Bhaskar B., Sree* Swapna D. (2024). PERFORMANCE OF CASTOR CULTIVARS AT DIFFERENT DATES OF SOWING IN RICE FALLOWS. Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 42(2): 92 - 96. doi: .
Field experiments were conducted during early summer seasons of 1995-96 and 1996-97 to
study the performance of four castor cultivars (two varieties viz., DCS-9 and Aruna; and two hybrids
viz., GCH-4 and DCH-30) at three different dates of sowing (Dec 20, Jan 5 and Jan 20). The results
revealed that dry matter production, leaf area index, number of capsules per plant, length of primary
spike, 100-seed weight, shelling percentage, seed and oil yields were significantly higher in the
crop sown on Jan 5 and with hybrids. Highest gross and net returns were obtained with Jan 5 sown
crop (Rs. 18219 and Rs. 4406/ha, respectively) and with hybrid DCH 30 (Rs. 20683 and Rs. 7241/
ha, respectively).
