Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at College Agronomy Farm, N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during summer, 2019 and 2020 comprising four intercropping treatments i.e. pearlmillet sole, pearlmillet+greengram, pearlmillet+cowpea, pearlmillet+clusterbean and three fertility levels viz., 75 % RDF, 100 % RDF and 125 % RDF. Significantly higher number of tillers per hill, dry matter accumulation per plant at 60 DAS and at harvest, number of earheads per hill, earhead length, grain and straw yields of pearl millet were noted in pearl millet + green gram intercropping in both the years of investigation as well as in pooled analysis. Whereas pearl millet equivalent yield was significantly highest in pearl millet + green gram (I2) intercropping system. In case of fertility levels, significantly higher values of plant height, number of tillers per hill at 60 DAS and harvest, dry matter accumulation per plant at 60 DAS and harvest, number of ear heads per hill, ear head girth, grain yield, straw yield, pearl millet equivalent yield were recorded in 100 % RDF(F2) treatment.


Keywords: Pearlmillet, Grain yield, straw yield, pearlmillet equivalent yield, RDF
