Abstract

A field experiment was conducted on sandy loam soil of Allahabad during the winter season
of 2008-09. There was a significant reduction in seed yield with delay in sowing from 20th October
to 10th November by a margin of 10.4%, row spacings of 30 cm (16.83 q/ha), resulted in 3.6%
and 1% more seed yield than closer (20 cm) and wider (40 cm) row spacings respectively.
Significantly higher yield was obtained in lentil sown on 20th October at 30 cm row spacing
(17.14 q/ha).
