Abstract:

a field experiment was conducted at Agronomy farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Rajasthan) during kharif, 2017 to find out the effect of moisture conservation practices and zinc fertilization on growth, yield and quality of pearlmillet. The experiment consisted of 20 treatment combinations of five moisture conservation practices i.e. control, dust mulch, pusa hydrogel, stover mulch and pusa hydrogel + stover mulch and four zinc fertilization levels i.e. control, 2 kg Zn/ha, 4 kg Zn/ha and 6 kg Zn/ha.Stover mulch recorded significantly higher plant height, dry matter accumulation, grain weight per ear heads, total number of tillers and effective tillers as compared to control, dust mulch and pusa hydrogel but remained at par with pusa hydrogel + stover mulch. Under zinc fertilization treatments application of 6 kg Zn/ha and 4 kg Zn/ha being at par with each other and proved significantly better over control, 2 kg Zn/ha in term of growth parameter, yield attributes and yield in pearlmillet. Final results revealed that application of stover mulch and 4 kg Zn/ha to pearlmillet were proved to be better.
