Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2011-12 and 2012-13 on rain fed barely (Hordeum vulgare) at Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. The treatments comprised 18 combinations of 3 varieties (Haritma, Narmada and Lakhan), 3 fertility levels (N40 P20 K20, N60 P 30 K30 and N80 P40 K40 kg/ha) and 2 moisture conservation practices (Hand weeding 25 DAS and pre-E spray of pendimethaline @ 3.3L/ha). Variety ‘Narmada’ (27.38 and 28.65 q/ha) and ‘Haritma’ (27.49 and 27.62 q/ha) being at par produced higher grain yield than ‘Lakhan’ (Rs. 17740 and 19795/ha). Among fertility levels, N80 P40 K40 recorded significantly highest grain yield (29.22 and 31.57 q/ha) against lowest grain yield (22.78 and 21.56 q/ha) and minimum net return (Rs. 16033 and 14290/ha) obtained at N40 P20 K20 fertility level during two different years. In case of moisture conservation practices, pendimethaline spray recorded higher grain yield (26.83 and 29.04 q/ha) and earned higher net return (Rs. 22179 and 25534/ha) than hand weeding (26.01 and 25.73 q/ha grain yield and Rs. 19528 and 19223/ha net return). B: C ratio was also found higher in respective treatments.
