Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the kharif season of 2018 on Foxtail millet of varieties SIA 3156 and SIA 326 (PRASAD) at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Naini Agricultural Institute, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P). the experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with 6 treatments combinations, consisting of two varieties of Foxtail millet (SIA 3156, SIA 326) and nitrogen management viz., Farmer’s practice (NPK= 40:20:0), 100% RDF (NPK= 50:30:20)), 75% RD N + 25% N through PM, 75% RD N + 25% N through PM + Azospirillum SI, 50% RD N + 50% N through PM and 50% RD N + 50% N through PM + Azospirillum SI. The Experiment revealed that in variety SIA 3156, integration of inorganic fertilizer of 75% RD N through Urea + 25% N through PM + Azospirillum Seed Inoculation resulted in maximum grain yield (2.31 t /ha), higher Net return (₹ 32,229.35 /ha) and maximum B:C ratio (2.59). In variety SIA 326, the experiment reveals that 75% RD N through Urea+ 25% N through Poultry Manure found out to be the best treatment which result in highest grain yield (2.31 t /ha), highest Net return (₹ 25,946.09 /ha) and B:C ratio (2.28).
