Abstract

The field experiment was conducted at Cotton Research Unit, Dr. PDKV, Akola during the Kharif season 2006-07 to find out the response of Bt hybrids for various spacings. Spacing of 90 x 60 cm recorded significantly higher yield than wider spacing of 90 x 120 cm, 90 x 90 cm and closer spacing of 90 x 45 cm. Spacing of 90 x 45 cm produced significantly higher seed cotton yield than spacing of 90 x 120 cm and 90 x 90 cm, however differences between later two spacings were not significant. Both the Bt cotton hybrids (Bramha BG and Atal BG II) did not differ significantly in respect of seed cotton yield.
