Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif, 2017 at Regional Agricultural Research Station, Jagtial with three varieties (SiA 3156, SiA 3085 and Suryanandi) in combination with four dates of sowing (10th, 20th 30th August and 10th September). The results revealed that the variety SiA 3085 recorded significantly higher stature of growth, yield attributes and yield. The above parameters were at their lower level with the variety Suryanandi. The crop sown on 30th August performed significantly higher stature of plant growth parameters; yield attributes and yields, while they were found to be at their lower level when sown on 10th September. The results concluded that sowing of foxtail millet variety SiA 3085 up to last fort night of August was profitable to the farmers in sandy loam soils of Northern Agro-climatic zone of Telangana.
