Abstract:

A field experiment on “Long term effect of integrated nutrient management on finger millet (Eleusine coracana G.) growth and yield was recorded at AICRPDA, GKVK, UAS, Bengaluru, during kharif 2018 with 8 treatments, replicated thrice laid out in RCBD. The results of the field experiment revealed that growth and yield parameters of finger millet such as plant height (96.53 cm), number of tillers per hill (7.60), number of ear heads per hill (7.37), number of fingers per ear head (6.61), test weight (3.56 g) and total dry mater production (82.67g per hill) were higher with the application of FYM @ 10 t ha-1 + 100% RDF. The grain (20.96 q ha-1) and straw (25.40 q ha-1) yield was found to be higher with the application of 10 tonnes FYM ha-1 and 100% RDF. This clearly indicated that application of organic and inorganic sources of nutrients increases growth and yield of finger millet as compare to inorganic only.
