Abstract

The effect of plant spacing and different sources of nutrient was studied on the growth and yield of cabbage. The experiment was conducted with two plant spacings (60cm x 45 cm, 60cm x 60 cm) and four levels of nutrients (no fertilizer, organic manures, organic + inorganic fertilizers and inorganic fertilizers) in RCB design. Plant spacing had marked influence on the growth parameters like number of loose leaves per plant and diameter of head. The plant under closer spacing produced high marketable yield (64.38t ha -1) than wider spacing. Plants those received organic + inorganic fertilizers produced the highest marketable yield (79.01 t ha -1). The treatment combination of 60 cm x 45 cm spacing with organic + inorganic fertilizers gave the highest marketable yield (86.68 t ha -1) of cabbage.
