Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on “Effect of crop establishment methods and brown manuring of finger millet (Eleusine coracana L. Gaertn) under irrigated ecosystem” at Instructional cum research farm, S.G. College of Agriculture and Research Station, Jagdalpur, Chhattisgarh, India during summer 2019 in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with seven treatments and three replications. Line sowing of Finger millet +DAP (30kg/ha.) of GPU-28 was carried out on 21th January 2019 maintaining crop geometry of 30 x 10 cm within each plot and finger millet was harvested on 28st May 2019. The result showed that maximum plant height, tillers number per meter square, number of leaves per plant, leaf area index, relative growth rate N, P and K nutrient uptake in grain and straw, number of fingers per panicle, finger length, number of grains per fingerlet and weight of 1000 seeds were obtained with line sowing of finger millet +DAP (30kg/ha.).Throughout the observations which was found significant and comparable to line sowing of finger millet and dhaincha together (3:1) desiccated by 2, 4-D @1.0kg ha-1 at 30 DAS. The highest grain (29.64 q ha-1) and straw yield (51.25 q ha-1) of finger millet were noticed in line sowing of finger millet +DAP (30kg/ha.) .Which was significantly more than rest of the treatments except the line sowing of finger millet and broadcasting dhaincha (3:1) desiccated by 2, 4-D @1.0kg ha-1 at 30DAS. The lowest grain and straw yield (12.17 and 28.57 q ha-1) was recorded by broadcasting of finger millet (Check).
