Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif seasons of 2017 and 2018 at Agricultural College Farm, Bapatla to evaluate the effect of phosphorus management practices on growth, yield attributes and yield of pearl millet. The seven treatments consisted of T1: No P, T2: 50% RDP T3: 75 % RDP, T4: 100 % RDP, T5: 50 % RDP + seed inoculation with PSB, T6:75 % RDP + seed inoculation with PSB, T7: 100 % RDP + seed inoculation with PSB with RBD design. The results showed that significantly the highest growth (plant height and drymatter production), yield attributes (earhead length and productive tillers per m-2), grain yield (kg ha-1) and stover yields (kg ha-1) were recorded with application of 100 % RDP + seed inoculation with PSB but remained statistically on par with the treatment which received 100 % RDP during both years of experimentation and in pooled data. Test weight (g per 1000 seeds) and harvest index were not significantly influenced by different treatments.
