A field experiment was conducted at Horticultural College and Research Institute, Venkataramannagudem, Dr. YSR Horticultural University with an objective of evaluating the effect of sowing date, variety and their interaction on growth, yield and quality of seed fenugreek in order to assess its fitment into sequence cropping under delayed sowing conditions. A total of five varieties viz., Hissar Sonali, Rmt-1, Co-1, Rajendrakranti and Co-2 were evaluated on five sowing dates at 15-day interval starting from 15th October to 15th December in split plot design with five main plots as sowing dates and five sub-plots as varieties. There were significant differences in the vegetative and yield parameters. The maximum values in respect of many of these parameters was recorded by Co-1 and Co-2 by sowing on 15th october it is also observed that Co-1 and Co-2 varieties were at par in some of these characters and on the other hand at lower level Rmt-1 and Rajendrakanthi were on par with one another. Regarding the sowing dates 15th October was found to be on par with 1st November and similarly 1st December and 15th December were also on par though recorded minimum values in respect of some of the characters including seed yield per plant and per plot.

Key words: Fenugreek, Growth parameters, Yields parameters.
