RESPONSE OF MUKHIKACHU (Colocasia esculenta L.) cv. Bilashi TO PLANT SPACING (Pages : 14 - 18)


The study was conducted at the Horticultural Farm and Laboratory of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Bangladesh during the period from February 2012 to March 2013 to study the effect of spacing on growth, yield and storability of mukhikachu cv. Bilashi. The experiment consisted of four different plant spacing S1 (60 cm × 20 cm); S2 (60 cm × 30 cm); S3 (60 cm × 40 cm) and S4 (60 cm × 50 cm). Maximum individual corm weight was found from S4 (90.3 g) which was statistically similar with S3 (89.1 g) whereas minimum from S1 (42.2 g). Maximum number of sucker per hill (7.9), yield of corm (5.6 ton) and cormel (26.2 ton) per hectare was found from S3 whereas the lowest from S1. 60 cm × 40 cm plant spacing was more suitable in consideration of yield contributing characters and yield but had no effect on the storability of cormels of mukhikachu.Download
