Abstract:

Field experiments were conducted in finger millet for two consecutive kharif seasons viz., 2015 and 2016 at Agricultural Research Station, Vizianagaram, Andhra Pradesh with an objective to reschedule the fertilizer doses of finger millet based on Soil Test Crop Response (STCR) and targeted yield approach. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. The experimental results revealed that growth characters, yield contributing characters, grain and straw yields and soil available nutrients recorded the highest in the treatment 200% RDN + 100% RDP+ 100% RDK + 25% RDZn + 25% RDS + 25% RDB integrated with 5 t ha-1 FYM which was on par with the treatment in which fertilizers were applied based on STCR equation for a targeted yield of 40 q ha-1 in soils whose nitrogen levels are low (below 140 kg ha-1), high phosphorus levels and medium potassium levels.


Keywords: Finger millet, Targeted yield Approach, STCR, Recommended dose of fertilizer.
