Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2018 at College Farm, College of Agriculture, PJTSAU to evaluate the effect of various sources of zinc and iron on grain quality parameters of fingermillet. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with 14 treatments and replicated thrice.The results revealed that application of different Zinc and iron sources at different rates significantly influenced the grain quality parameters (protein and calcium content) of finger millet. Highest protein (11.25%) and calcium content (2.33%) in grain were obtained in the treatment receiving RDF + foliar application of FeSO4 @ 0.5% twice at 30 and 60 DAS which was on par with treatment receiving RDF + foliar application of Fe-humate twice at 30 and 60 DAS (10.90% and 2.0 %) and the lowest (6.25%) and calcium content (1.10 %) were recorded with application of RDF alone. Other than protein and calcium content there was no significant differences between treatments with respect to N, P, K, Zn, Fe, and carbohydrate content in grain.
