Abstract


A field experiment with six treatments of crop geometry viz. 40 cm x 15 cm, 40 cm x 20 cm, 50 cm x 15 cm, 50 cm x 20 cm, 60 cm x 15 cm and 60 cm x 20 cm in main plots and four levels of nitrogen (0, 60, 120 and 180 kg/ ha) in sub plots was conducted in split plot design with four replications. The present study concluded that planting of baby corn at 50 cm x 15 cm resulted in higher growth and yield attributes and finally yield of baby corn and its fodder.The plant height, Leaf area index, baby corn and green fodder yield were higher in 50 cm x 15 cm crop geometry than all other geometry treatments. Most of the growth attributes as well as cob and baby corn yield increased with increase in the level of N application up to 120 kg N/ha. However, green fodder yield was significantly improved up to 180 kg N/ha.
