Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the summer seasons of 2017 and 2018 on loamy sand soils of Agronomy Instructional Farm, Chimanbhai Patel College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar, Gujarat to assess the effect of wheat residue management and fertilizer levels on growth, quality, weed and yield of summer pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.] under North Gujarat conditions. The results indicated that among the wheat residue management treatments, harvesting through combine harvester and straw incorporate in soil + decomposer fungal consortia (1 lit/t) + 25 kg N/ha (R6) enhanced the growth parameters, quality and yield viz., dry matter production and CGR, protein content grain and straw yield of pearl millet. Among wheat residue management treatments, harvesting through combine harvester and burning the straw (R2) recorded significantly lower weed density and dry weight of weeds at 20 DAS in pearl millet. Application of 120 : 60 : 00 kg N : P2O5 : K2O/ha (100 per cent RDF) to pearl millet significantly improved growth parameters, quality and yield, while, significantly lower weed density and dry weight of weeds recorded under 50 per cent RDF.
