Abstract:

The experiment was laid out in split plot design with two factors namely, tillage practices and different conservation farming split with three replications. The treatment consisted of three tillage practices viz. T1- Conventional tillage, T2 –Minimum tillage and T3 – Summer plouging and five conservation farming viz. C1-Opening conservation, C2-Intercropping with redgram, C3-Mulching, C4-Herbicide application, C5-Combination of all treatments (C1+C2+C3+C4). Observations of crops are analyzed in Split plot design having three replications. The result revealed that conventional tillage gave Growth parameter like- plant population, plant height, root length, dry matter accumulation and leaf area index, crop growth rate, relative growth rate and net assimilation ratio in different stages mostly remained unaffected due to tillage practices. Number of effective tillers, 50% flowering date, number of finger lets penicale-1 and length of finger was not affected significantly due to tillage during experimentation. Whereas, number of seeds per finger, test weight, grain yield ha-1, stover yield and system productivity were recorded significantly highest in treatment summer plouging but harvest index was recorded significantly highest in minimum tillage. In case of Conservation farming system, finger millet recorded significantly higher growth parameter like – plant population, plant height, dry matter accumulation, LAI, CGR, RGR and NAR mostly affected in all combination of treatment practices, however combination of treatment recorded higher values. Number of finger lets penicale-1, length of finger and number of seeds per finger was significantly highest in all combination of treatment C5 except number of effective tillers was observed significantly higher in herbicide application treatment. Whereas, highest grains yield ha-1, test weight, stover yield and system productivity were recorded significantly highest in all combination of treatment.
