Garden cress (Lepidium sativum L.) is an upcoming medicinal plant, belonging to the family Cruciferae. A field experiment was conducted with the combination of 3 dates of sowing as main plot treatments and 5 levels of fertilizer as sub plot treatments in split plot design with three replications, under the Northern dry zone of Karnataka, India. During 75 DAS to harvest, significantly maximum AGR (0.28 g.day-1) and CGR (9.39 gm-2 day-1) were recorded when the crop was sown on 1st November (D2). Application of 80:80:30 kg of NPK/ha (F4) resulted in significantly maximum AGR (0.31 g day-1), RGR (10.97 mg g day-1) and CGR (10.17 g m-2 day-1). But, the interaction effect for AGR, RGR and CGR were found to be non-significant. Significantly higher oil content (18.30%) was recorded in D2F2 combination and oil yield (842.89 kg/ha) was found in D2F4 combination, while the least oil content and oil yield (14.07% and 319.10 kg/ha, respectively) was noticed in D1F0 combination.

The present investigation was carried out at the Department of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants, K.R.C.C.H., Arabhavi (Karnataka), India during October 2010 to February 2011. A field experiment was laid out in split plot design with 3 dates of sowing as main plot treatments and 5 levels of fertilizer as sub plot treatments and with three replications. Garden cress crop sown on 1st November (D2) recorded significantly highest nitrogen and phosphorus uptake. Application of 80:80:30 kg of NPK per hectare (F4) recorded significantly highest nitrogen and phosphorus uptake. D2F4 combination recorded significantly higher nitrogen uptake (92.51 kg/ha), while the interactions for phosphorus and potassium uptake were found to be nonsignificant. Higher net returns of Rs. 2,07,145/- and benefit: cost ratio of 6. 55:1 was also recorded with the same treatment combination, under northern dry zone of Karnataka.

An investigation was carried out to study the effect of spacing and NPK on growth and yield of makoi under hill zone-9 of Karnataka at Horticulture Research Station, Thirthahalli, University of Horticultural Sciences, Bagalkot during the year 2013-14. The results revealed that, spacing of 60 x 45 cm and application of NPK fertilizer @ 125:75:75 kg /ha was found beneficial for getting higher growth and fruit yield by makoi. Among different spacing levels, maximum plant height (70.41 cm) was noticed in SI (60 x 45 cm) and the spacing of 60 x 60 cm (S2) recorded maximum number of branches (14.22) and maximum number of leaves (233.77), higher fresh and dry fruit yield (14.33 and 2.58 t/ha, respectively). Among the different fertilizer levels, application of 125:75:75 kg NPK / ha (F8) recorded maximum plant height (74.27 cm), higher number of branches (15.23), higher number of leaves (269.77), fresh and dry yield (16.03 t and 3.71 t/ha, respectively) by makoi compared to other levels and control. Non-significant difference was noticed among the interaction with respect to number of leaves. Whereas, maximum plant height (76.00 cm) was noticed in the plants spaced at 60 x 45 cm and supplied with 125:75:75 kg NPK / ha (S1F8). While, maximum number of branches (15.43) was noticed in the plants spaced at 60 x 60 cm and supplied with 125:75:75 kg NPK / ha (S2F8) combination. The interaction of spacing and fertilizer levels showed non significant effect in increasing fresh and dry yield of makoi. Copyright © EM International.
