Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during rabi, 2015-16 and 2016-17 in the farmers field at Gajularega village of Vizianagaram district to know the production potential of finger millet under rice fallow conditions. First year finger millet seed was broadcasted in standing crop of paddy and left the crop without undergoing thinning and gap filling or any intercultural operations. Second year, thinning and gap filling, intercultivation with hand weeding was done within thirty days after sowing. During both the years, eight finger millet varieties of different duration were tested for their suitability for cultivation in Rice fallow conditions. Experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications. Experimental results revealed that, significant improvement in the yield attributing characters and grain yield were observed in the second year compared to the first year, which indicates the effectiveness of thinning and gap filling, intercultivation with hand weeding operations. About 3-6 times improvement in net monetary returns was noticed in different treatments in the second year compared to previous year. Considering different varieties, performance of VR-900 is good, however it was on par with VR-762 (Bharathi), VR-847(Srichaitanya), Vakula and PRS-2. Further highest net monetary returns and B:C ratio were also observed with VR-900 followed by VR-762 and VR-847.Lowest grain yields were recorded in the Udaramalligae during both years of study.
