Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on medium black calcareous clayey soil at Junagadh (Gujarat) during summer season of 2019 to study the effect of zinc and iron fortification on growth and yield of summer pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br. Emend. Stuntz). The experimental results revealed that significantly higher values of growth parameters viz., Number of total tillers/plan tand yield attributes viz., Number of effective tillers/plant, Ear head length, Ear head girth and 1000-grain weight along with higher seed yield and stover yield were recorded with increasing foliar spray of iron and zinc. However, higher net return and B:C ratio were also realized with the application of FeSO4 @ 1.0% 25 & 50 DAS and ZnSO4 @ 0.5% at 25 & 50 DAS.
