Abstract: STUDIES ON PLANTING GEOMETRY AND NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT IN CUMIN (Cuminum cyminum L.) PRASHANTH G. I. 2012 Dr. B. T. PUJARI Major Advisor ABSTRACT A field study was conducted during the rabi 2011-12 at Agronomy field unit at the Agriculture College Farm, Raichur to investigate the studies on planting geometry and nutrient management in cumin (Cuminum cyminum L.) in north eastern dry zone of Karnataka under protective irrigation. The experiment was laid out in split split plot design with three replications. Two planting densities (P1 – 20 cm x 10 cm and P2 – 30 cm x 10 cm) in main plot, two different sulphur levels in sub plots (S1– 20 Kg S ha-1 and S2– No sulphur) and NPK levels (F1 – 50 % RDF, F2 – 100% RDF, F3 – 150% RDF) in sub-sub plots. The results revealed that narrow planting geometry of 20 cm x 10 cm has recorded significantly higher cumin seed yield (745 kg ha-1) and yield components. Whereas wider spacing at 30 cm x 10 cm has recorded lowest seed yield (610 kg ha-1). Application of sulphur @ 20 kg ha-1 has recorded higher dry matter accumulation (3.51 g plant-1), seed yield (750 kg ha-1) and straw yield (1450 kg ha-1) over control. Application of 150 per cent RDF has recorded significantly higher seed yield (819.8 kg ha-1), net returns (Rs. 1,31,064 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (5.92) as compared to 100 and 50 per cent RDF. Application of 150 per cent RDF along with sulphur @ 20 kg ha-1 and narrow spacing has recorded significantly higher cumin seed yield (976.6 kg ha-1), net returns (Rs.1,66,817.3 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (6.92) over other treatment combinations. Significantly higher uptake of nitrogen, potassium and sulphur (37.49, 42.79 and 6.13 kg ha-1, respectively) was recorded with the 150 per cent RDF in presence of sulphur @ 20 kg ha-1 and narrow spacing. However lowest uptake of nutrients was noticed in 50 per cent RDF application. Interaction effect of planting geometry, sulphur and NPK levels had significantly increased nutrient uptake and yield components of cumin.
