Abstract:

The present study was carried out to understand the effect of foliar spray of plant growth retardant substances on different growth parameter of pearl millet under rainfed condition. Results indicated that foliar spray of plant growth retardants at tillering and post-anthesis stage influenced growth and yield attributing traits viz., grain yield, ear head weight, total dry matter, threshing index, harvest index, test weight, number of effective tillers were significantly higher or it was statistically at par with treatment of chloromequet chloride @ 250 ppm when compare to other treatments. Significantly less number of days 50% flowering and days to maturity were observed in foliar spray of chloromequet chloride @ 250 ppm at tillering and post-anthesis stage. Finally, the treatment chloromequet chloride @ 250 ppm is better compare to other treatments which produced highest grain yield with high benefit cost (B: C) ratio of 2.78.
