Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Agricultural Research Station, Hagari, Karnataka in medium black soil during rabi-2017 to study the effect of agronomic fortification on nutrient content and dry matter accumulation in Foxtail millet. Research was carried out in split plot design consisting of three genotypes in the main plot and seven methods of micronutrients application in sub plot, it was replicated thrice. The study results revealed that the genotype Sia-2644 in main plot recorded significantly higher zinc and iron content (26.21 and 721 ppm) over the other genotypes. In sub plot, the treatment RDF + Soil application of ZnSO4 at 15 kg ha-1 and FeSO4 at 10 kg ha-1 + Foliar application of 0.5% ZnSO4 and FeSO4 each 30 DAS recorded significantly higher total N, P, K, Zinc and Iron content (3.11%, 0.492%, 0.648 %, 49.15 ppm and 1079 ppm, respectively) and dry matter accumulation in leaf at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest (1.71, 3.82 and 6.59 g plant-1, respectively), stem (0.84, 5.80 and 11.33 g plant-1, respectively), reproductive part at 60 DAS and at harvest (1.39 and 11.76 g plant-1). In interaction, the genotype Sia-2644 (G3) with treatment RDF + Soil application of ZnSO4 at 15 kg ha-1 and FeSO4 at 10 kg ha-1 + Foliar application of 0.5% ZnSO4 and FeSO4 each 30 DAS recorded significantly higher total N (3.18 %), P (0.512 %), K (0.683 %), Zinc (49.97 ppm) and Iron content (1090 ppm) and dry matter accumulation at 60 DAS and at harvest in leaf (3.91 and 6.85 g plant-1), stem (5.87 and 11.61 g plant-1) and reproductive part (1.50 and 12.06 g plant-1).
