Abstract

The present investigation on season and planting method on seed quality of grain amaranthus (Amaranthus hypochondriacus L.) Cv. suvarna was carried out in the Department of Seed Science and Technology, TNAU, Coimbatore. The results revealed that seed production could be taken up both in kharif and summer. Among them kharif crop recorded 10.4 % increased yield than summer with transplanting of seedlings of 12 days old would be optimum for enhancing the productivity of the grain amaranthus seed crop.
