Knol-khol varieties evaluated with different plant spacing for quality and economics. Maximum length (7.17 cm) and volume of knob (219.07 cc) were reported in plant grown with a spacing of 30 cm x 30 cm. Whereas, maximum crude protein (3.54%) and organoleptic score (7.31) were found in S2 (25 cm x 25 cm). The highest TSS (7.50 °Brix) was observed with plant spacing 20 cm x 20 cm (S1). Variety Purple Vienna (V4)recorded maximum volume of knob and crude protein (186.36 cc and 3.24 %, respectively). Maximum TSS content (7.50 °Brix) and organoleptic score (7.10) was recorded with White Vienna (V1) variety. Maximum B : C ratio (8.43 :1) and net returns (Rs. 6,37,279) recorded with 20cm x 20cm spacing and White Vienna variety.
