Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Zaid season, 2015 at the Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHIATS, and Allahabad (U.P.) to conducted Economics statues of summer pearlmillet (Pennisetum glaucum L.) hybrids to different 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 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), dry weight (40.80g), 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). The highest gross return (78795.00 ha-1), net return (57222.00 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (2.65) were registered in treatment T11 i.e., N3 (20:60:20NPK) + 0.2% foliar spray of borax at 35DAS (pre-flowering). Whereas the lowest value (48925.50 ha-1), (30075.50 ha-1) and (1.59) respectively in the treatment T1 i.e., N1 (20:40:20 NPK).
