Abstract:

A field experiment were conducted during Kharif season 2018 on loamy sand soil at the OPJS University, Churu (Rajasthan) to study the effect plant growth regulators (PGRs) and Zinc fertilization on growth of pearlmillet comprised of three PGRs (1000 ppm triacontanol, 50 ppm naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) including water sprayed (control) with four levels of Zinc (0, 2, 4 and 6 kg ha-1).  It was conducted in factorial randomized block design and replicated thrice.  The results revealed that foliar application 20 and 40 day after sowing (DAS) in pearlmillet of triacontanol and NAA significantly was recorded increased in plant height, dry matter accumulation over water sprayed. Triacontanol and NAA were gave significantly over water sprayed, whereas, plant stands was recorded not significant at 20 DAS and at harvest stage. Four Zn level application in soil was found significantly in plant height, dry matter accumulation, significantly increased with zinc fertilization @ 4 kg Zn/ha over control, which was remained at par with 6 kg Zn/ha.
