A Study of Planting Method and Spacing on the Yield of Potato Using TPS

S. Mahmood

An experiment was carried out at the Horticulture Farm of Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh to investigate the effect of planting method and spacing on the yield of potato using Cv. BARI TPS-2. The experiment consisted of (a) two planting methods viz., transplanting and direct sowing in the field, (b) two planting systems viz., single row and double row system and (c) three spacing viz., 50x5, 50x10 and 50x15 cm. The experiment was laid out in RCBD with 3 replications. Transplanting method produced the highest yield (46.09 t ha-1) by increasing plant height, fresh and dry weight of foliage and number and weight of tubers per plant than the direct sowing method (32.00 t ha-1). Double row system of planting and the plant spacing 50x5 cm produced the maximum yield 41.67 and 42.32 t ha-1, respectively. Transplanting with double row system gave the highest yield (48.98 t ha). Whereas, the transplanting with 50x5 cm spacing produced the maximum yield (50.72 t ha-1). The highest yield 44.19 t ha-1 was produced by the combination of double row and 50x5 cm. The combination of planting method, planting system and spacing produced marked effect on all parameters studied, being the highest yield (52.62 t ha-1) in the combination of transplanting, double row and 50x5 cm spacing.
