Abstract

Field experiment was carried out on cabage (Brassica oleracea L. Var. capitata) CV. “;Pride of India” to study the effect of different levels of nitrogen (0,50, 100, 150 and 200 kg N/ha) and spacings (30 x 60 cm, 45 x 60 cm and 60 x 60 cm) on the quality and yield of cabbage. The nitrogen had significant affect the TSS (%), dry matter per cent, chlorophyll content (mg g −1), compactness of head (rank marks), head diameter (cm), head weight (gm) and yield (q/ha). The maximum TSS, dry matter per cent, chlorophyll content, and head diameter were recorded in 200 kg N/ha. However, the highest head weight (1127.22 gm) and yield (312.42 q/ha) was recorded in application of 150 kg N/ha. Spacing also affected the quality and yield of cabbage. The quality improved with increase in spacing. Highest yield of 303.09 q/ha was recorded in 30 x 60 cm spacings.
