The field experiment was conducted at college farm, college of Agriculture, Hyderabad during Rabi 2015-16 to evaluate Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) at different dates of sowing and varied crop geometry in semi-arid regions of Telangana. The higher plant height was obtained in 16th November date of sowing, total dry matter at harvest was higher at 15th date of sowing ,1st November and 16th November recorded higher number of panicles plant-1, maximum seed yield was obtained with 15th October date of sowing. The highest seed yield was obtained with narrow spacing 15 × 10 cm and was followed by 30 × 10 cm spacing. The maximum net returns, cost benefit ratio and interaction effect of seed yield was recorded higher on 15th October date of sowing at 15 × 10 cm spacing.

Key words: Quinoa, Geometry, Dry matter, Panicle, Seed, Benefit cost ratio
