Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Zaid season, 2015 at the Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHIATS, and Allahabad (U.P.) to conclude the response of summer pearlmillet (Pennisetum glaucum L.) hybrids to levels of nitrogen. Among the response of different hybrids to levels of nitrogen, treatment T9 i.e., V3 + 100:45:45 kg ha-1 NPK, recorded maximum plant height (175.30cm), number of tillers plant-1 (3.67), dry weight (47.73g), crop growth rate (1.53 g m-2 day-1), relative growth rate (0.052 g g-1 day-1), number of ear plant-1 2.37, length of ear (27.52cm), number of Grains ear-1 (2406.49), test weight (10.29g), grain yield (3.72 t ha-1), straw yield (6.98 t ha-1), protein content (13.43%) and harvest index (36.15%). Whereas the lowest value in terms of plant height (164.47cm), number of tillers (2.60 plant-1), dry weight (40.80g), crop growth rate (1.30 g m-2 day-1), relative growth rate (0.045 g g-1 day-1), number of ear (1.37 plant-1), grain yield (2.47 t ha-1) and straw yield (4.62 t ha-1) was observed in the treatment T1 i.e., V1 + 80:45:45 kg ha-1 NPK). Further, ear length of (21.16cm) was observed in the treatment T8 i.e., V3 + 90:45:45 kg ha-1 NPK). In terms of number of grains (2406.49 ear-1), test weight (8.04 g) was recorded in the treatment T5 i.e., V2 + 90:45:45 kg ha-1 NPK). Further, protein content (9.48%) was observed in the treatment T5 i.e., V2 + 90:45:45 kg ha-1 NPK) and harvest index (19.01%) respectively in the treatment T4 i.e., V 2+ 80:45:45 kg ha-1 NPK.
