Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on “Effect of different level of N P K and Biochar on soil Physico-chemical properties, yield and attribute of Finger Millet (Eleusine coracana) Var. – KM 65” during Kharif season 2019-20 at the Research farm Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Naini Agriculture Institute, SHUATS, Prayagraj. The design applied was 3x3 randomized block design having three factors with three levels of N P K @ 0, 50, and 100% ha-1, three levels of Biochar @ 0, 50 and 100% ha-1 respectively. The result obtained with treatment T9 - [N P K 100% + Biochar 100%] that showed the highest yield regarding, gave the best results with respect to plant height 110.18 cm, number of finger ear head-1 7.42g, 1000 grain weight 3.48g, it gave highest yield 27.29 q ha-1 Biochar in combination resulted in a slight decrease in pH 6.78 and EC increase 0.26 dS m-1. In post soil of N P K fertilizers observations were resulted in significant increase in OC 0.82%, Particle density 2.63 Mg m-3, Bulk density 1.08 Mg m-3,Porespace 58.93% and available  N 328.75 kg ha-1, P 36.10 kg ha-1, K 186.10 kg ha-1, significant increase in case of Nitrogen (kg ha-1), Phosphorus (kg ha-1), Potassium (kg ha-1) was found to be significant among other treatments in finger millet cultivation and soil quality improvement. It was also revealed that the application of NPK with Biochar were excellent source for fertilization than fertilizers.
