Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy farm, of S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner (Rajasthan) during kharif 2015 on loamy sand soil, which consisted eight treatments of fertilizers/manures (Control, RDF (60:30:0), FYM @ 12 t/ha, FYM @ 6 t/ha + ½ RDF, vermicompost @ 5 t/ha, Vermicompost @ 2.5 t/ha + ½ RDF, Poultry Manure @ 4 t/ha, Poultry Manure @ 2 t/ha + ½ RDF) and two treatments of microbial inoculation (without inoculation and with Azotobacter) thereby making sixteen treatment combinations were tested in randomized block design with three replications. Recommended dose of fertilizer for pearlmillet was 60 kg N and 30 kg P2O5/ha. Results indicated that application of Vermicompost @ 2.5 t/ha + ½ RDF, FYM @ 6 t/ha + ½ RDF and Poultry Manure @ 2 t/ha + ½ RDF remaining at par with each other and significantly increased plant height, dry matter accumulation, total number of tillers, chlorophyll content effective tillers, ear length, grains/ear, test weight, grain, stover and biological yield, protein content over control. Nitrogen and potassium content in grain were significantly increased due to application of poultry manure @ 2 t/ha + ½ RDF. However phosphorus content in grain was significantly increased due to application of vermicompost @ 2.5 t/ha + ½ RDF and nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium content in stover and their uptake were significantly increased due to application of vermicompost @ 2.5 t/ha + ½ RDF. Application of poultry manure @ 2 t/ha + ½ RDF gave highest net returns of ` 34898/ha
