An experiment was conducted at Urban Technology Park, Division of Vegetable Science, SKUAST-Kashmir during 2013–2014. Four levels of spacing and four steckling sizes in carrot were used giving rise to sixteen treatment combinations. Widest spacing (60 cm x 75 cm) recorded maximum plant height number of branches plant−1, number of secondary umbels plant−1, number of tertiary umbels plant−1, seed yield per primary umbel, secondary umbel and tertiary umbel and seed yield plant−1. However highest seed yield, number of secondary and tertiary umbels were recorded in closest spacing of 60 cm × 30 cm. Extra-large steckling size (150–175 g) recorded highest plant height, number of branches plant−1, number of secondary and tertiary umbels, seed yield per primary, secondary and tertiary umbel, seed yield.
