Abstract

The experiment was carried out in Balochistan Agricultural Research and Development Centre Brewery Road, Quetta during Kharif 2016 to check the effect of four different row spacings i.e., 25, 30, 35 and 40 cm on influence of row spacing on yield and yield attributes of black gram (Vigna mungo L. Hepper) variety Chakwal in Balochistan under semi-arid climate. Results revealed that except of total dry matter all the parameters including yield and yield components were significant at (P>0.05) influenced by different row spacing. Maximum (709) grain yield kg ha-1 was received from the treatment-3 (35cm row spacing) followed by treatment-4 (40 cm row spacing) which produced (663) grain yield kg ha-1 while the minimum (429) grain yield kg ha-1 was gave by the treatment-1 (25 cm row spacing) respectively. Results more revealed that treatment-3 (35 cm row spacing) and treatment-4 (40cm row spacing) produced (16) and (12) total pods was recorded per plant vastly significantly and nice preformed simultaneous with grain yield. Therefore, researchers obtained differential response in relation to row spacing and selecting high yielding cultivars of mash bean.
