Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on “Productivity and quality dynamics of parching sorghum genotypes as influenced by nitrogen management through vermicompost during rabi season” of 2018-19. The results revealed that among the parching sorghum genotypes, Gulbhendi Local-1 showed significantly higher growth attributes viz., plant height, dry matter plant-1 and stem diameter as compared to genotype Phule madhur at harvest. However, the parching sorghum genotype Phule madhur showed significantly more number of leaves, leaf area plant-1 and leaf : stem ratio over genotype Gulbhendi Local-1. With reputes to yield attributes, the parching sorghum genotype Phule madhur recorded higher green hurda yield over the genotype Gulbhendi Local-1 and found significantly superior of the parching sorghum genotype Gulbhendi Local-1. However, the genotype Gulbhendi Local-1 recorded maximum green fodder yield and found significantly superior over the genotype Phule Madhur. The highest benefit: cost ratio was observed in Phule Madhur as compared to Gulbhendi Local-1 genotype. With regards to nitrogen management at harvest, application of 125% RDN ha-1 through vermicompost recorded superior growth as well as yield attributes along with optimum B:C ratio and was found significantly superior over 100 percent RDN ha-1 through vermicompost, 50 per cent RDN ha-1 through vermicompost and control, respectively. The experimental consequences revealed that with reputes to quality analysis of grain the parching sorghum genotype Phule Madhur found superior over Gulbhendi Local-1. Similarly, the results revealed that in respect of proximate analysis, the fodder from Gulbhendi Local-1 found superior over Phule madhur with respect to crude protein, crude fibre, Ether Extract and total ash. However, the genotype Phule Madhur found better in producing Nitrogen free extract. In respect of quality and proximate analysis, application of 125% RDN through vermicompost also proved significantly superior over other nitrogen management treatments.
