Abstract:

Foxtail millet is an important nutri cereals which sustains well in adverse conditions like limited rainfall, poor soil fertility. It has capacity to withstand drought, adaptable to poor environment and input management.  A field experiment was conducted at agriculture Research Station, Hagari during Kharif 2018-19 to know the influence of seed priming with chemicals, micro nutrients and bio-inoculants on growth and seed yield in Foxtail millet. In the present study the twelve priming treatments were used.  Among the treatments, T12 (Seed priming with Azospirillum (20 %) + Pseudomonas fluorescens (20 %) + Phosphobacter (20 %) + Zn SO4 (0.1 %) + Boron (0.1 %) recorded significantly highest plant height and number of tillers at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest (52.25 cm, 133.70 cm and 134.12 cm respectively and 5.18, 5.37 and 5.37 tillers per plant respectively). Days to 50 per cent flowering and days to maturity was lower (52 and 92 days respectively). In addition to this, significantly highest panicle length (27.58 cm), panicle weight (42.87 g), seed yield per plant (16.28 g), seed yield per hectare (2720 kg ha-1), fodder yield per hectare (8196 kg ha-1) and test weight (3.66 g) were observed for T12 (Seed priming with Azospirillum (20 %) + Pseudomonas fluorescens (20 %) + Phosphobacter (20 %) + Zn SO4 (0.1 %) + Boron (0.1 %) compared to control (21.90 cm, 26.83 g, 9.23g, 1480  kg ha-1, 4681 kg ha-1 and 2.80 g respectively).
