Evaluation of OFT on different spacing in watermelon

SA Aklade, VJ Zinzala and Mahaveer Choudhary

The On Farm Testing (OFT) on “Evaluation of different spacing in watermelon” during the Summer season was conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Navsari Agricultural University, Waghai on farmers field in three villages namely Ambapada, Davdahad and Borigavtha of Waghai taluka during the years 2013-14 to 2015-16 comprising of three different spacings tratments viz., T1 = 1.0 x 0.5 m (Farmers practices), T2 = 2.0 x 1.0 m (Normal spacing) and T3 = 1.0 x 0.6 x 3.4 m (Paired row spacing). The results revealed that the watermelon crop sown at paired row spacing resulted in higher yield of 19300 kg/ha as well as net returns of Rs. 1, 50,500/ha as compared to 18108 kg/ha yield & Rs. 1, 40,580/ha net income under normal spacing and the farmer's practices recorded the least values for both the parameters (15174 kg/ha and Rs. 109240/ha, respectively). So, on the basis of OFT results, it is recommended to grow watermelon crop at a spacing of 1.0 x 0.6 x 3.4 m for obtaining higher yield & net returns.
