Abstract:

A field trial was conducted to standardize row spacing and suitable genotype of foxtail millet to Southern Transition Zone of Karnataka at College of Agriculture, Shivamogga. Three foxtail millet genotypes viz., Local, HMT-1 and SIA 2644 were grown at four different spacing viz., 30 cm x 10 cm, 20 cm x 10 cm, 20 cm x 5 cm and10 cm x 5 cm. Experiment was laid out in factorial Randomized complete block design with three replications. The pooled results of the experiment shows that Among the different spacing, plants grown at 20 cm x 10 cm recorded significantly higher plant height (100.50 cm), number of leaves (35.14), number of tillers hill-1 (14.43), number of productive tillers hill-1 (12.19), test weight (3.48 g), panicle length (16.26 cm), panicle weight (4.38 g) and grain yield (2227 kg ha-1), straw yield (4349 kg ha-1) and quality parameters viz., Protein (10.08 %) and fibre (6.33 %), as compared to other planting density. Among the genotypes, SIA 2644 recorded significantly higher growth parameters viz., plant height (86.90 cm), number of leaves (30.64), number of tillers hill-1 (11.55), number of productive tillers hill-1 (9.76), test weight (3.26 g), panicle length (14.29 cm), panicle weight (3.79 g) and grain yield (1941 kg ha-1), straw yield (3919 kg ha-1) and quality parameters viz., Protein (10.08 %) and fibre (6.33 %), as compared to other genotypes. The combined effect of 20 cm x 10 cm + SIA 2644 was recorded significantly higher growth, yield and quality parameters as compared to other treatments.
