Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2018 at college farm of N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari, Gujarat, to study the effect of integrated nutrient management on summer pearl millet under south Gujarat conditions. Two levels of manure (no compost and vermicompost @ 10 t/ha), three fertilizer levels (no RDF, 75 per cent RDF and 100 per cent RDF) and two levels of biofertilizer (no seed inoculation and seed inoculation with Azotobacter @ 2 ml/kg seeds) were compared. Application of 10 tonnes vermicompost/ha significantly increased plant height at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest (23.68, 90.79 and 166.23 cm, respectively), dry matter accumulation at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest (24.21, 45.18 and 53.54 g/plant, respectively), number of effective tillers (3.76), ear head length (19.20 cm), ear head girth (5.53 cm), test weight (12.70 g), grain yield (5035 kg/ha) and straw yield (11134 kg/ha) over control. Improvement in plant height at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest (23.20, 88.28 and 161.17 cm, respectively), dry matter accumulation at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest (22.02, 41.84 and 49.16 g/plant, respectively), number of effective tillers (3.33), ear head length (18.73 cm), ear head girth (5.48 cm), test weight (12.45 g), grain yield (4310 kg/ha) and straw yield (9479 kg/ha) were also noticed with 100 per cent RDF. Seed inoculation with Azotobacter also increased plant height at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest (22.65, 87.31 and 160.17 cm, respectively), dry matter accumulation at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest (19.96, 39.31 and 46.97 g/plant, respectively), number of effective tillers (3.21), ear head length (18.05 cm), ear head girth (5.41 cm), test weight (12.37 g), grain yield (3904 kg/ha) and straw yield (8704 kg/ha) over control.


Keywords: Ear head girth (5.53 cm), Test weight (12.70 g), Grain yield (5035 kg/ha)
