RH Chaudhari, PC Mali, YR Parulekar, BR Salvi and SG Mahadik

An experiment was conducted at College of Horticulture, Dapoli, Ratnagiri (Dist.), during the period Rabi season to study the effect of consecutive sowings and spacing on growth and yield of radish.The study was conducted with three consecutive sowings of radish viz. C1- Sowing during second fortnight of October., C2-Sowing during second fortnight of November and C3- Sowing during second fortnight of December having four row spacings viz., T1-20 cm spacing between two rows., T2-30 cm spacing between two rows., T3-40 cm spacing between two rows and T4-Broadcasting. The results indicated that C3 i.e.,sowing during second fortnight of December was performed better and found significantly superior over other sowing time in respect of plant height and yield per plot . However, days to germination, number of leaves, average leaf area, weight of plant and dry matter of leaves was found significantly superior in C1i.e. Sowing during second fortnight of October. In respect of spacing, the wider spacing T1 i.e. 20 cm row spacing was found significantly superior in plant height and dry matter of leaves, while average leaf area found significantly superior in T2. In respect of interaction of consecutive sowings and spacing, the treatment combination C3T3 was found significantly superior in plant height and yield per plot. While average leaf area significantly superior in C3T4. Hence, the treatment C3T3 (December sowing with 40 cm row spacing) was found to be most profitable
