Abstract

Field experiments were conducted during the rainy seasons from 1996 to 1998 to study the response of early maturing soybean variety to different row spacing, plant population and nitrogen levels, in the black solis of Krishna - Godavari zone. Planting the early maturing soybean at 6.0 lakh plant population per ha gave significantly higher seed yield (1597 kg ha−1) and was on par with the population of 5.0 lakh plants/ha (1573 kg ha−1). Seed yield increased with increasing levels of nitrogen and significantly higher seed yield (1631 kg ha−1) was recorded at 60 kg N per ha. Mean seed yield differences due to different spacings were non-significant
