Abstract:

A field experiment was undertaken to study the Response of Integrated Nutrients Management on Growth and Yield of Pearlmillet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br. emend. Stuntz.]-Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cropping system. The investigation was carried out at Research Farm of Department of Agronomy CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during 2009-10 consisting of 12 treatment combination viz., T1 - control (no fertilizer): T2 - 50% recommended NPK to pearlmillet and wheat: T3 - 50% recommended NPK to pearlmillet and 100% recommended NPK to wheat; T4 - 75% recommended NPK to pearlmillet and wheat; T5 - 100% recommended NPK to pearlmillet and wheat; T6 - 50% NPK + 50% N (farmyard manure) to pearlmillet and 100% recommended NPK to wheat; T7 - 75% NPK + 25% N (farmyard manure) to pearlmillet and 75% recommended NPK to wheat; T8 - 50% NPK + 50% N (wheat straw) to pearlmillet and 100% recommended NPK to wheat; T9 - 75% NPK + 25% N (wheat straw) to pearlmillet and 75% recommended NPK to wheat; T¬10 - 50% NPK + 50% N (Sesbania spp.) to pearlmillet and 100% recommended NPK to wheat; T11 - 75% NPK + 25% N (Sesbania spp.) to pearlmillet and 75% recommended NPK to wheat and T12 - farmers’ practice laid out in randomized block design. Results of the experiment revealed that plant height and dry matter accumulation was maximum in Treatment T6 which is significantly higher than inorganic treatments T1, T2 and T3 in pearlmillet and wheat but statistically at par with integrated treatments T5 and T10 in wheat and T5 and T11 in pearlmillet. Similarly, treatment T6 recorded highest grain and stover/straw yield of pearlmillet and wheat, which is statistically at par with T5 and T10 in wheat and T5 and T11 in pearlmillet but significantly superior to all other treatments in both the crops.
