The field experiments were conducted with an objective to study the impact of spacing on the productivity and to optimize the nutrient requirement for barnyard millet (Kudiraivali) under sodic soil condition using the short duration high yielding variety Co (KV) 2 during summer season of 2018 and 2019 at Anbil Dharma lingam Agricultural College and Research Institute, Trichy. The experiments were carried out in FRBD comprising two factors viz., crop geometry and nutrient management. Factor one consist ofS1 - 20 x 10 cm, S2 - 15 x 10 cm and S3 - 25 x 10 cm. Nutrient management practices like N1-100 % N + 100 % P, N2-100 % N + 100 % P + FYM@ 12.5 t / ha, N3-125 % N + 125 % P and N4-125 % N + 125 % P + FYM@ 12.5 t / ha. The experiment was replicated thrice. Totally twelve treatment combinations were analyzed. Results revealed that spacing at 15 x 10 cm with 125 % RDF of N + P along with FYM recorded highest grain yield of 608 kg/ha with increased growth parameters like plant height, number of tillers and yield attributes viz., number of panicles, length of panicle and weight of the panicle.
