Abstract:

A field Study on response of three pearl millet hybrids to the four levels of nitrogen was conducted at College farm, College of Agriculture, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad during the summer season of 2010-11. The study comprised of three hybrids Vikas, Hanuman and XB-20plus at four levels of nitrogen (0, 40, 80, 120 kgha-1). The design of experiment was split plot design with hybrids as main plot treatments and the levels of nitrogen as sub-plot treatments. Analysis was carried out for grain yield and yield contributing factors i.e. number of spikes per m2, spike length, grain weight. It was concluded that all the mentioned yield attributing characters except test weight, were superior with hybrid Hanuman (Test weight was found to be at par with all three hybrids). These yield attributing characters including test weight was found superior with the level of 120 kg N ha-1. Grain yield was recorded highest with hybrid Hanuman over the other two hybrids and among the nitrogen levels, it was with application of 120 kg N ha-1.
