Plant Spacing Effects on Growth, Yield and Lint of Cotton

M.H. Siddiqui, F.C. Oad and U.A. Buriro    

Abstract: The field experiment was conducted to assess the performance of cotton varieties (CRIS-9, Karishma and Niab-78) under different plant spacing (15, 25 and 35 cm) at Student’s Farm, Sindh Agriculture University, Tandojam. It was noted that plant height, branches, open bolls plant-1, un-open bolls plant-1, lint and seed cotton yield were significantly affected by plant spacing and varieties, while their interactions were non significant for all the crop parameters. Cotton with 35 or 25 cm plant spacing recorded satisfactory lint weight and seed cotton yield, this increment in yield was associated with the increase in all growth and yield attributes. It was concluded that among the tested varieties, Niab-78 displayed maximum seed cotton yield (1700 kg ha-1) with 35 cm plant spacing.
