Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Main Agricultural Research Station, Raichur, Karnataka, during kharif 2018-2019 to study the “Effect of integrated nutrient management practice on growth and yield of foxtail milllet (Setaria italica L.) in black soil” to evaluate and analysis of foxtail millet through nutrient management practices to achieve higher growth and yield parameters. Total dry matter production (3.12, 13.15 and 30.75 g plant-1 at 30, 60 and at harvest, respectively), leaf area (40.90, 79.01 and 22.99 dm2 plant-1 at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest, respectively), leaf area index (0.17, 0.30 and 0.10 dm2 plant-1 at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest, respectively), number of tillers (4.30 plant-1) and plant height (31.03, 112.10 and 141.80 cm at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest, respectively), were significantly superior with application of RPP (RDF + 2.5 t ha-1 Vermicompost + Bio-fertilizer) + Spray of 19:19:19 at 15, 30 and 45 DAS (T11) as compared to (T1) absolute control. Adoption of RPP (RDF + 2.5 t ha-1 Vermicompost + Bio-fertilizer) + Spray of 19:19:19 at 15, 30 and 45 DAS (T11) was significantly higher grain yield and straw yield (25.95 and 46.70 q ha-1), however, lower grain yield and straw yield (8.53 and 15.51 q ha-1) was obtained in (T1) absolute control. Similarly RPP (RDF + 2.5 t ha-1 Vermicompost + Bio-fertilizer) + Spray of 19:19:19 at 15, 30 and 45 DAS (T11) significantly higher weight of ear head (10.65 g plant-1), length of ear head (23 cm) and number of ear head (4.63 plant-1) as compared to lower weight of ear head (5.53 g plant-1), length of ear head (10.82 cm) and number of ear head (2.27 plant-1) was noticed in (T1) absolute control.
