Abstract:

Pearl millet-wheat cropping system is important cropping system of northern India and is traditionally a component of the dry land system, usually grown in soils with depleted in sandy areas, where deficiency of Zn is a common occurrence. In the present study it was found that the higher level of Zn (10 kg/ha) did not improve the protein yield over 7.5 kg Zn/ha in both crop seasons. This may be attributed to lower grain production at 10 kg Zn/ha treatment. The addition of FYM also improved the protein yield over control in both crop seasons. There was a significant increase in protein yield with combined application of FYM and zinc levels and maximum yield was recorded with 7.5 kg Zn + 5 ton FYM/ha treatment in both crop seasons. Application of 5 ton FYM/ha also improved protein content in grain and stover of pearl millet significantly over control. When the combined FYM and Zn were used together, the resulted in higher value of Zn content in grain and stove was observed. The maximum values of Zn content in grain and stover were noted under 5 ton FYM/ha + 10 kg Zn/ha in both crop seasons. The residual effect of FYM on zinc uptake by wheat grain and straw was significant over control in both crop seasons. The results, thus, indicate the beneficial effect of combined used of Zn levels with FYM.
