Abstract:

A field experiment to study the effect of different sowing dates on growth and yield of finger millet cultivars under rainfed conditions was conducted during three consecutive kharif seasons of 2016, 2017 and 2018 at the experimental farm of Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Sub-montane Zone, Kolhapur (Maharashtra) India. The experiment was conducted with four dates of sowing as main plot (2nd week of June, 4th week of June, 2nd week of July and 4th week of July) and four finger millet varieties (Phule Nachani, GPU 28, GPU 67 and Dapoli 1) as sub-plot in split plot design with three replications. Pooled results of the three years showed that the significantly highest plant height (88.7 cm), number of tillers (2.6), length (7.3 cm) and number of fingers (6.5), was recorded with second sowing date i.e. on 4th week of July.  However, significantly highest grain and straw yield (22.51 and 29.88 q ha-1) as well as monetary returns was observed with sowing of finger millet variety Phule Nachani in 4th week of June i.e. 26th MW on shallow and light soils in IX rainfall situation of sub-montane zone of Maharashtra.
