Abstract
An experiment was conducted to determine the effect of different planting geometry and fertilizer levels on performance of yield and economics of compact cotton genotypes during kharif 2014-15 and 2015-16 at University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. Interaction effect between cotton genotypes, spacing and fertilizer levels were found to be significant for seed cotton yield, yield parameters and economics. The treatment combination of RAH-274 sown at spacing of 45x10 cm with the application of 100:50:50 kg NPK ha-1 recorded significantly higher seed cotton yield (3668 kg ha-1) as compared to other treatments. It was found on par with genotypes RAH-99 and DSC-1351 (3575 and 3497 kg ha-1, respectively) at same spacing and fertilizer level. The above said treatments were recorded significantly higher gross returns (₹.154049, 150150 and 146860 ha-1, respectively), net returns (₹. 94911, 100701 and 97411 ha-1, respectively) and benefit: cost ratio (3.12, 3.04 2.97, respectively) over remaining treatments.
