ABSTRACT: A field experiment was carried out during rabi season 2010-11 to study the “effect of different spacings on growth, yield and economics of cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata). The results revealed that significantly highest number of leaves (11.99), plant spread (56.43 cm) in North-South and (56.77 cm) in East–West, minimum days taken to first harvest after transplanting (92.25 days), maximum head diameter (14.23 cm) and average weight of head (0.80 kg) were recorded with plant spacing of 60 cm x 45 cm. Highest per cent of plant stands (77.02 %) was obtained with plant spacing of 45 cm x 45 cm. Maximum head yield per plot (25.00 kg) and per hectare (27777 kg) and fodder yield ha-1 (24194 kg) with maximum net realization of  Rs.171862 were obtained under plant spacing 30 cm x 30 cm.
