Abstract:

 System of Finger millet intensification or SRI-finger millet cultivation is a method of cultivating finger millet by applying cultivation principles adopted in SRI (System of Rice Intensification) in order to get higher productivity. This method is also called as Guli type of Planting. This POP developed for SRI-Finger Millet is an integration of the farmers’ practice and standard practices of finger millet cultivation along with two levels of two doses of fertilizers. Here an effort has been made to know the potentiality of this finger millet cultivation to increase the productivity of the Ragi crop was taken during 2015-16 kharif season at KVK Farm Hirehalli of Tumakauru district in Karnataka state. Tillering starts after the first weeding. On an average 8-10 tillers per hill emerge, out of which 6-8 become productive and bear the fingers. More number of Tillers was observed in T4- 60 x 30 cm with 100% RDF - single seedling followed by T3 -60x 30 cm with 50% RDF and finally highest Ragi yield was obtained in the same treatment T4 with quantity of 2452 kg/ha followed by 2361 kg/ha in T3.
