An experiment was conducted to evaluate the varietal cum row spacing effect on the productivity of tabacco varieties viz. R-5, R-9, bubaki, sindi achho, R-6 and R-swabi as main plot and row spacing i.e., 60 and 75 cm as sub plot at Tandojam. It was observed that there was a significant (P<0.05) difference among tabacco varieties and row spacings. The variety R-5 was late maturing with highest yield of 958.33 and 1027.77 kg ha-1 at 60 and 75 cm row spacings, followed by R-swabi (888.88 kg ha-1) at both row spacing, this is due to the plant with thicker stem and broader leaves.
