Abstract:

Afield experiment was conducted at National Seed Project, University of Agricultural Sciences, GKVK, Bengaluru (Karnataka) during 2017-18 to study the effect of sowing time under changing climatic condition and standardization of date of sowing in finger millet. Seven popular varieties of finger millet (short duration GPU-48; medium duration-GPU-28 -GPU-67, INDAF-7 and ML-365; long duration MR-1 and MR-6) were planted in RCBD at every month. The observations were recorded at monthly intervals and results were analyzed using suitable statistical tool. The study revealed that, Effect of sowing time on seed yield of finger millet varieties, GPU-28 recorded maximum seed yield in month of August-18 (40.67 q/ ha), GPU-48 in July-18 (38.10 q/ ha), GPU-67 in April-18 (37.78 q/ ha), Indaf-7 in Dec-17 (42.38), ML-365 inJuly-18 (45.52), MR-1 in June-18 (51.75 q/ ha) and MR-6 in Dec-17 (51.75 q/ ha). The present investigation we found that there is no shifting in sowing time in GPU-48, ML-365 and MR-1. Whereas, GPU-48 from Late Kharif (August) to Kharif (June July), GPU-67 from kharif (June) to early kharif (April) followed by Kharif (June-July), Indaf-7 from Rabi (Oct) to Late Rabi (December) followed by Kharif (July) and MR-6 from Kharif (June) to Rabi (December) sowing show alternative sowing time and gives better seed yield. In terms of growth and seed yield MR-6 shows best performance compare to other varieties of finger millet. Hence, increasing yield in finger millet choice of variety and sowing time played a key role.
