A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2014 at N. E.B.C.R.C. of G. B. Pant University of Agriculture & Technology, Pantnagar to assess the effect of transplanting on growth parameters of Brassica species. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replications, taking four planting geometry and three genotypes in main plots and sub plots, respectively. Growth parameters viz. plant height, root density and flowering and maturity duration were significantly influenced by planting geometry and genotypes. Transplanted crops were observed better in growth parameters and thus higher seed yield, as compared to conventional sown crop. Interaction effect between planting geometry and genotypes was also significant for root density and seed yield. Brassica carinata cultivar RP-09 was found superior among the different genotypes under all the planting geometries. Highest seed yield was obtained with transplanting of RP-09 at 60 cm × 60 cm planting geometry.
