Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2014at Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station, Bhavikere, University of Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences, Shivamogga for nutrient management practices for organic cultivation of finger millet (Eleusinecoracana L.) under southern transitional zone of Karnataka. Among the different treatments, application of farmyard manure (FYM) at 10 t ha-1 + Biodigester Liquid Manure Equivalent (BDLME with two splits) at 75 kg N ha-1 recorded significantly higher grain yield (18.36 q/ha), straw yield (34.88 q/ha) and harvest index (0.46) with higher growth and yield attributing characters like plant height (132.2 cm), number of leaves per plant (20.00) and number of tillers per hill (5.4), finger length (9.57 cm), 1000 grain weight (13.87 g) and panicle weight (12.22 g) and higher gross return gross return (Rs. 34233 ha-1), net returns (Rs.24793 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (2.63) compared to application of FYM at 5 t ha-1 + BDLME(Two splits) at 25 kg N ha-1 recorded significantly lower grain yield (10.37 q ha-1), straw yield (19.71 q ha-1) and harvest index (0.41)due to growth and yield attributing characters like plant height (120.3 cm), number of leaves per plant (11.80) and number of tillers per hill (3.5), finger length (6.05 cm), 1000 grain weight (16.93 g) and panicle weight (6.64 g) and higher gross return gross return (Rs. 21694 ha-1), net returns (Rs.12624 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (1.39)compared to all other treatment combinations.
